Advanced Workflow: Trigger without a Record being saved?

Question asked by Bud Hartley on Jan 3, 2017

Simply stated, I need to find the "replacement" for the current Workflow function that watches the value of a field and fires when it matches a condition.


One of the Workflows I need to replace simply says: "When a particular date is one week away, send an email".  Simple right?


The Process Manager logic is: Start when record is created, set a timer for one week before the date and send the email.  Wonderful!  Except the date is a moving target and once the process starts it doesn't recognize any changes in the affected fields.


I have the same challenge with other data types, but changing dates is by far the biggest problem.
