Whoomp, there it is! (Translated: Why Salesforce Process Builder Rocks!)


“Why does Salesforce Process Builder rock?” you ask.

Simple: In less than an hour I can create a Custom Object called System Status with 6 fields. Create Status records for all of our major corporate systems (phones, firewall/VPN, programs like WebEx and Office365), and setup a process where our IT group can quickly update records with news of outages or downtime.

With Process Builder I can easily (in minutes) setup a process so when IT Checks a Box to initiate a Company-Wide Notification of the status, a Chatter Post is automatically created in our Corporate Chatter Group (where all 400+ employees have access) with details of the System Status.

Without Process Builder I would not have been able to create the functionality for the  Chatter Post in minutes. It would have involved apex classes and triggers and debugging (Oh My!) which I am still quite the novice at!

So today I am shouting out my love of Process Builder to the masses! What do you love about the Process Builder?

Whoomp There It Is!
