Hi St2018,

Certainly! Here are some strategies for automating repeatable tasks and processes in Salesforce:
  • Use Process Builder: Process Builder is a powerful automation tool in Salesforce that allows you to automate a wide range of tasks and processes. You can use Process Builder to create automated workflows that run when a record is created or updated, and trigger a series of actions based on certain criteria.
  • Create Workflows: Workflows are another automation tool in Salesforce that allow you to automate a variety of tasks and processes. You can use workflows to automate email alerts, field updates, and other actions based on specific criteria.
  • Use Flow: Flow is a powerful tool that allows you to automate more complex business processes. With Flow, you can create custom business logic and automation that can perform tasks such as creating and updating records, sending email alerts, generating reports, and many more.
  • Use Apex Triggers: Apex Triggers are code snippets that allow you to automate processes and tasks that are not supported by Salesforce's standard automation tools. With Apex Triggers, you can write custom code that runs in response to specific events or conditions.
  • Use AppExchange Apps: The Salesforce AppExchange is a marketplace where you can find thousands of apps and integrations that can help you automate your processes. You can search for apps that are specifically designed to automate the processes you need to streamline.
To achieve your desired outcome, you may need to use a combination of tools depending on the specific processes you want to automate. For a complete guide on Salesforce automation, including an overview of each automation tool within the newly released updates, refer to the article found at
