Workflows are one of the powerful features of Salesforce. It helps to automate many actions like updating a field, creating a task, sending an Email-Alert, and Outbound message based on some criteria.
In Salesforce actions are of two types
Immediate actions execute, the moment when the criteria is met.
Time-Dependent actions execute at a specific time defined by you, such as sending an Email alert after 48 hours of lead creation. When the specified time passes, the workflow rule re-evaluates to check that the record still meets the rule criteria or not.
