Is it possible to activate a time based workflow on the day OF a date field? The options are "before" or "after" a date.

Will "1 hour after" a date work? OR "0 days after" a date

  • this question is easily amenable to testing in your sandbox - have you tried that?

  • Yea but sometimes the timebased workflow doesn't fire right away. I was just trying to get a quick answer. It still hasn't fired and it meets all the criteria needed. Do you have an answer? @crop1645 Oct 14, 2015 at 18:51
  • see help.salesforce.com/apex/… to see if any of this applies to you. I've used the x hours after before and it works fine; never tried 0 days after

1 Answer 1


I believe "0 days after" should work:

If you schedule an action for 0 Days After a date, there may be a delay from the time represented by the date field before the action group executes.


This is for Process Builder schedule actions, but I think it's the same for Workflows.
