    Can we automate that ?

  • Hi Vivek,

    A workflow needs a trigger to start it, so it will need to be either a record being created,updated,deleted, manually by a user, or being started by a user.

    One trick is to register a workflow on delete of a record, and then using bulk delete to schedule records to be deleted. The workflow can then create a new record to be deleted the next time round when it has completed.

    Hope this helps,

    Scott
