You can use the $Permission global variable in all places where a formula can be used, and specifically in relation to Workflow rules, this means criteria-based Workflow Rules cannot be used - you need to switch to use a formula as entry-criteria
To be complete the same global formula syntax can be used in:
Formulas used in field updates
This OR clause:
OR(Record_Type_Hidden__c <> "New_Agent",Record_Type_Hidden__c <> "Renewing_Agent")
will always be TRUE:
If Record_Type_Hidden__c is "New_Agent", then it is not equal to "Renewing_Agent" and the clause is TRUE.
If Record_Type_Hidden__c is "Renewing_Agent", then it is not equal to "New_Agent" and the clause is TRUE.
You can create multiple email alerts based on your workflow rule.
For new owner (queue or a person)
This will separate it out and help in the reduction and better diagnosis of any failure.
The real trick is notifying the previous owner on the record as he/she(userId) is no longer present on the record to send an email to.
To get ...
Make sure that your workflow rules aren’t set up to create recursive loops. For example, if a field update for Rule1 triggers Rule2, and a field update for Rule2 triggers Rule1, the recursive triggers may cause your organization to exceed its limit for workflow time triggers per hour.
The key to understanding this is that Rule1 and Rule2 must both be ...
While discussing about workflow rules, I think it is also better to discuss about process builder and compare it.
Here is my testing on both workflow and process: (having re-evaluate workflow and re-evaluate enabled in process)
In a new dev org, have 3 picklist fields with options:
pl1 - 1op1,1op2,1op3
pl2 - 2op1,2op2,2op3
pl3 - 3op1,3op2,3op3
May be the confusion is there : Everything you can see in Setup => Monitor => Time-Based Workflow is in fact a Time-Based workflow. Immediate actions won't appear there.
Do you, by any chance, check the limit against a developer org? Developer has a limit of exactly 50 Hourly Time Based Workflows.
If you encounter this problem on Enterprise Org and it only ...
