Why should you use Workflows in Salesforce?
What is a Workflow in Salesforce?
The workflow in Salesforce is a set of rules or business logic engine that automates certain internal procedures or business processes on a particular action. The workflow rules are created such that they evaluate every record when they are created or updated. Then it automates a certain action if the criteria are met, such as send an email, create a task, notify someone, assign tasks, or update a field. If they are not met, the records will be saved without performing any action.
Essentially, Workflows are the main container of the rules governing any automation. They actually replace the part where you had to constantly monitor any reports, or dashboards to know if it is time to make a certain action. They automate the entire process with their rules/instructions that can be summed up in an if/then statement.
In simpler terms, Workflow in Salesforce speeds up the manual processes and saves your time. They accelerate your business processes by eliminating the manual time lag consumed to review the information to decide if any action is required.
This feature is available in Enterprise, Performance, Developer and Unlimited Edition
