We want to send email notification to user on first time login to Salesforce. Has any one tried it?

I did it using a trigger but I am not able to get it done using Workflow. I can't compare LastLogin with the old value in Workflow as it is not available in formula based rule.

Salesforce doesn't fire any trigger/Workflow/Process on LastLogin date update.

I ended up using trigger to send the email.

Is there any documentation that says last login date update wont fire triggers?

If you are only looking to send it based upon the first time they ever log in could you have a workflow/trigger/process that fires off of LastLoginDate. When they have never logged in that value is blank.

  • Yeah that strange you can use it for Criteria but is not there when trying to make a formula. You can use it in PB so you might try that if you dont want to use Apex. – Dan Oct 8 '15 at 16:17
