Schedule Actions in Processes to Happen Immediately

You can now create a schedule in Process Builder that waits for zero hours or days, which means the pending actions are executed as soon as possible. Previously, one hour was the minimum time for a pending scheduled action that’s adjusted from the current time. You can use scheduled actions to avoid governor limits, because scheduled actions are executed in a separate transaction from immediate actions.

Where: This change applies to Lightning Experience and Salesforce Classic in Essentials, Professional, Enterprise, Performance, Unlimited, and Developer editions.

How: When you add a schedule to a process, set the time for actions to execute to 0 Hours from now.

Set time for actions to execute


Actions are executed within one hour, but may be executed sooner depending on the number of actions Salesforce is currently processing.
