I have a requirement where an email has to be fired after 3 days the Applicant's Go_Live_Status__c is set. But the issue is I couldn't see that field in the "Select Date Field" in the scheduled action section in Process Builder. I can see other Date fields but I cannot use those to fulfill this requirement. I want to know is there any way to add a field? If not please suggest me an alternative method to achieve this. Thanks!

  • Is Go_Live_Status__c a formula field? Process Builder can't use formula fields to trigger scheduled actions. Commented Dec 22, 2019 at 3:59
  • did you check fls for Go_Live_Status__c? Commented Dec 22, 2019 at 4:39

you can set the scheduled action to run 3 days from "now" (the day where Go_Live_Status__c is set)

Thanks for your thoughts and inputs guys. It is a Date field but on other the other object. The object on which I'm building the PB have a Lookup relation with that object and I though PB can read those related fields too. No I have to build a new PB on that object as I cannot use formula field. Thanks again.
