Work flow of Sales Force


The tasks and emails that are done manually on a regular basis as a part of an organization's standard process can be configured as a work flow in sales force.

Workflow is the automation of the following types of actions based on the organization's processes:

Tasks - Assigns a new task to a user, role, or record owner. Email Alerts - Sends an email to one or more recipients specified. Field Updates - Update the value of a field on a record. Outbound Messages - Sends a secure configurable API message (in XML format) to a designated listener.

For example, workflow can automatically:

Assign follow-up tasks to a support rep one week after a case is updated. Send sales management an email alert when a sales rep qualifies a large deal. Change the Owner field on a contract three days before it expires. Trigger an outbound API message to an external HR system to initiate the reimbursement process for an approved expense report.

Organization's workflow can be configured by creating workflow rules.

Each workflow rules consists of:

Criteria that cause sales force to apply the workflow rule. Immediate actions that execute when a record matches the criteria. For example, sales force can automatically send an email that notifies the account team when a new high-value opportunity is created. Time-dependent actions that sales force queues when a record matches the criteria, and executes according to time triggers. For example, sales force can automatically send an email reminder to the account team if a high-value opportunity is still open ten days before the close date.
