Creating a Date-Based Trigger


The Date-based Triggers feature allows an Administrator to set up Triggers based on a date Field or a Formula that produces a date variable. 

Date-based Triggers run on the Field or Formula date associated with the Trigger, help decrease the number of Triggers that run nightly and improve system performance.

Please contact your CSM in regards to switching Nightly Triggers to Date-Base Triggers.

User Account Requirements

The user account you use to log into Resolver must have Administrator permission to create a Date-Based Trigger.
