Mass Action Scheduler

Mass Action Scheduler

Mass Action Scheduler :-

Mass Action Scheduler used to schedule Process Builder, Flows, Quick Actions, Email Alerts, Workflow Rules, or Apex to process records from Reports, List Views, SOQL, or Apex.

No more waiting for records to be updated or creating clever workarounds to cause records to be updated to cause these actions to fire.

 

Features:

  1. Declarative – no code necessary, never write Batch Apex again for queries that can be expressed in a report or list view and actions that can be expressed with a declarative alternative.
  2. On Platform – everything happens in Salesforce so no exporting or uploading data necessary.
  3. Timely – run actions manually or schedule hourly, daily, weekly, or any time in between.
  4. Versatile – explore the many data sources and actions that can be scheduled with Mass Action Scheduler.

Almost any process automation you configure can be scheduled.
