๐Ÿง About the Project

๐Ÿ—ฃ Ethos

Mass Action Scheduler is a free-as-in-speech and open source developed passion project of Doug Ayers.

๐Ÿ’ช Mission

Put the power of Batch Apex within reach of declarative configuration.

๐Ÿš€ Value Proposition

Declaratively schedule Process Builder, Flows, Quick Actions, Email Alerts, Workflow Rules, or Apex to process records from Reports, List Views, SOQL, or Apex.

No more waiting for records to be updated or creating clever workarounds to cause records to be updated to cause these actions to fire.

Choose source data to process


Choose an action to automate


Map fields as inputs to selected action


Choose how often to automate action


Receive near real-time updates on batch job successes and failures


๐Ÿ’ก Inspiration

This project is inspired by the following IdeaExchange ideas. Please vote them up to increase chances this functionality becomes standard on the Salesforce platform. Thank you!

Inspired by Marie Chandra's idea Ability to Schedule when Process Builder Triggers.

Inspired by Narender Singh's idea Ability to schedule flows, workflows and processes in process builder.

๐ŸŽˆ Features

Declarative - no code necessary, never write Batch Apex again for queries that can be expressed in a report or list view and actions that can be expressed with a declarative alternative.

On Platform - everything happens in Salesforce so no exporting or uploading data necessary.

Timely - run actions manually or schedule hourly, daily, weekly, or any time in between.

Versatile - explore the many data sources and actions that can be scheduled with Mass Action Scheduler.
