Schedule your actions, notify your users
Zoho Creator offers the following types of schedules:
On a specified date and time
Schedule a workflow to get executed on a specified date and time. You can configure this type of workflow to run daily, weekly, monthly, yearly, or just once. For example, alert a customer service representative about the priority of support tickets that require action at a predefined hour everyday.
Schedules based on a date field in any app form
Schedule a workflow to get executed based on the value of a field in any of your forms. This type of schedule will execute minutes, hours, days, or weeks before or after the date value in the record. For example, you can send a meeting reminder a few minutes before its starting time.
Instant alerts about app activity
Notifications alert users about various events in your apps. Learn about some of ways you can leverage Zoho Creator's notifications:
You can automatically send an email notification for many events—for example, upon shipping or successfully delivering a product.
You can send an SMS notifying stakeholders about an event or an action in your apps—like when a user places an order.
You can display a mobile notification through the Zoho Creator app. For example, when an out of stock item becomes available in your inventory, you can send an instant mobile notification to alert stakeholders.
When an action is complete, you can display a custom success message notifying the user, like when they submit a form.
Redirects to a URL
You can redirect your users to a URL of your choice upon the completion of any action. Say when a user buys your product, you can redirect them to a page displaying similar products.
