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.

On a specified date and time

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.
