I would like to send notifications for users if a certain field is sitting in the same value for longer than, for example, 5 days. Is this possible?

For example, we have developed an approval process within the opportunities based on gates and have a extension field that indicates whether the gate is submitted, approved or rejected ( Gate Status) . My idea is to create a notification to opportunity owner and manager to receive if gate status is at "Submitted" longer than 5 days.

Hello Fernanda,

You can try to create workflow rule with Timing : Scheduled to achieve your requirement.

- For Business Object : Opportunity, Select Timing: Scheduled with below fields in Basic data:

Event: Changed date/time

Relative Time: After and Time Offset: 5 Day(s)

- Condition With require field ex. 'Approval Status'

Equal = Submitted.

- Define Action as per your requirement.

Thanks Amit,

I have tried to create a workflow based on your answer, however, when I get to the actions step, notification is not an option. My only options are "Action, activity task, email, field update, messaging" .
