I am trying to write a trigger to update user records as soon as they are added to a Group. So I decided to write a trigger on GroupMember but it says "SObject type does not allow triggers: GroupMember" is there a workaround for this?


Salesforce doesn't allow to write a trigger on GroupMember object. You should write a batch class to see the changes in GroupMember record.

There is an idea around this, you can vote for on that idea.


GroupMember Object is not triggerable..

Verified from workbench: /services/data/v41.0/sobjects/GroupMember

enter image description here
