Difference between Process Builder and Workflow in Salesforce

Process builder allows you to do the below actions:

  • Create a new record.
  • Update any related record.
  • Quick action to create a record, update a record, or log a call.
  • Launch a flow.
  • Send an email
  • Post to Chatter.
  • Submit for approval
  • Call apex methods
  • But the process builder doesn’t support outbound messages.

Workflows can only handle four types of actions:

  • Create Task.
  • Update Field.
  • Email Alert.
  • Outbound Message.
