Use the Dynamics 365 Workflow Follow-up Reminders to Never Miss a BeatThe Follow-Up Reminders workflow trigger in Microsoft Dynamics 365 was designed to help users create a task to follow-up on a lead or opportunity based on a date field or other event in CRM.

For example, when an Opportunity is created, wait “X” weeks, and then create a task and/or send an email reminder to follow-up. Salespeople benefit most from this workflow.

To set up this workflow, user-level knowledge is required.
