I wanted to add an "Update Records" action in a process and set a new checkbox field to true which I created just before. However, even after reloading process builder the field is not available in the list of fields to update... is the list cached somewhere or am I missing something obvious?


I tried this and saw my checkbox field no problem, so I'm going to hazard a guess that you have fallen into the "Select a Field" overlay trap. Which is this:

When you click on the "Object" field and it gives you the "Select a Field" overlay, it's REALLY asking you to select an object, not a field. So it gives you a list of lookup fields to navigate to a related object.

If you click on the object name, and click save, it will then give you a list of fields on that object that you can update.

    Wow, that is exactly what I did. Time to go pester the UI team methinks ;) – Matt Lacey Mar 17 '15 at 1:41

    They are already aware of it. I did exactly the same thing a couple weeks ago, and I only have to walk 3 aisles over ;-) – shannonsans Mar 17 '15 at 1:42
  • Could you go pester them again please - I just wasted 5 minutes of my life on the same issue :-) – MikeA Jan 28 '16 at 12:16
  • This helped me when I got stuck in Lightning super badge. It was actually confusing in Process builder. Thanks. – Pasan Eeriyagama Nov 2 '17 at 1:00
