Hi,

 

Yes, you can create a workflow where the criteria will be set to trigger  when the picklist value is changed and is now equal to what it should be after 90 days.

 

You can set up an email alert to the notify the opportunity owner as described in the links below:

Hi SC,

 

I understand that you wish to trigger a workflow 90 days after a picklist value is changed.

 

Following is one option:

Step 1 ) Create a date field which should be auto filled in when the picklist value is updated by the user(using workflow)

Step 2) Create another workfollow with condition such that it is triggered 90 days after this date(in step 1) is  updated.

 

Hope I've understood the req correctly and suggestion helps!

Hello Sonam,

 

Thank you very much to take the time to reveiw my post about Workflow. When Opp is created the picklist value is set and when  time has past like (90 days) that same picklist, the value will automaticaly change and then an alert is be sent to the Opp Owner.

 

Is this possible?

 

Thanks again,

SC

I have come across a nice workflow and a document management tool, it is called Ultra Documents. It is very simple and easy to use; you can get setup and start a workflow in minutes. Ultra Documents comes with Document Management, document merging, Workflow process, Custom Forms, Electronic signature & various applications, the nice thing is it has a free version with all features available to you. Give it a try.
