Creating workflow to trigger email when a specific task is marked complete

I'd like to create a workflow at the task level, to trigger a workflow when a specific task name contains "sample" in its name is marked complete.  When the task is marked closed it will fire off an email.

Hi Kevin,


You can create a 1 workflow rule that will do that in two actions.

  1. Run time: When a record is created, or when a record is edited and did not previously meet the rule criteria

  2. Eval: Contains($Name,"sample")

  3. Action no. 1: Change State = 'Completed'

  4. Action no.2 : Send email


Please feel free to join one of our advanced Q&A webinars for further questions!


Good luck!
