hourly limit for processing workflow



I received the following message from my Salesforce instance. What exactly does that mean?  Does it imptact anything? Please advise.


Your organization has reached its hourly limit for processing workflow time triggers. Processing will resume in the next hour. For information on application limits, see the online help.






Salesforce limits the number of time triggers an organization can execute per hour as follows:

  • Enterprise Edition =500
  • Developer Edition =50
  • Unlimited Edition =1,000


If an organization exceeds these limits, Salesforce defers the execution of the additional time triggers to the next hour. For example, if an Unlimited Edition organization has 1,200 time triggers scheduled to execute between 4:00 PM and 5:00 PM, Salesforce processes 1,000 time triggers between 4:00 PM and 5:00 PM and the remaining 200 time triggers between 5:00 PM and 6:00 PM.


So you don't need to do anything, as this is handled by salesforce itself.
