Automatically update checkbox field on Contact when someone becomes a Campaign Member

I'm a new admin trying to get my feel wet writing workflow formulas. I'm not sure if this is what I need or if I'll need a trigger instead. I'd like a checkbox to update on the Contact record when someone becomes attached to a Campaign with a certain record type (i.e. a Campaign Member record is created or deleted). Any suggestions would be incredibly helpful!

Here's my formula so far... IF(AND( Campaign.RecordType.DeveloperName = Service Platoon,( ISPICKVAL( Status , 'Sent'), Contact.Platoon_Member__c = TRUE), NULL)
You will need a Trigger OR There is a feature called Flow Trigger, which is only in Pilot right now.  With Flow Trigger, I suspect what you want to do will be possible.  Here's a link to the Flow Trigger: https://help.salesforce.com/apex/HTViewHelpDoc?id=workflow_flow_action_considerations.htm&language=en_US

If you want to participate in their Pilot program, you will need to contact Salesforce.

I see. Was afraid of that. Thanks for the help!
