I need I validation rule to change the status picklist on case object to value "Submit to Client" when checkbox with the same "Submit to Client" is ticked. Could you please advise how this can be achieved as well as please provide some relevant example.

  • Validation rules can only add errors to records being saved. It sounds like you want to use a workflow rule. – martin Jun 27 '16 at 14:04
  • ok, even with workflow rule could you please advise how it can be achieved by giving an exmaple. I'm quite new to the workflow rules. – sfdev Jun 27 '16 at 14:13
