I am trying to make a workflow rule that will send an email to that specific sales person after an account is created.

What i am doing to accomplish this is setting a Rule Criteria after the account is created with the Field (multiselect picklist) Contacted by is set with that Sales Person.

During that process I am getting this Error: This type of field (Picklist (Multi-Select)) cannot use the selected operator.

Please advise how can i solve this or any idea if possible.




Please use INCLUDES() function in the formula for Multi Select picklist fields.

INCLUDES(Hobbies__c, "Golf")
