Process Builder Bug to Take Note

Well, it is annoying when the process builder does not work for reason that not mentioned in documentation properly.

I decided to compile the list of nonsense difficulties that I found whilst using Process Builder

Using 15 ID in Process Builder(Big No)

I use 15 char ID in Process Builder criterita that I retrieve from Salesforce URL to fire Email Alert.The email does not get fire although Deliverabilities and other setting are correct.

To confirm, I run SOQL with 15 char ID and it returns value. So it leave me clueless why my Process Builder does not work.Oh, hello it just Process Builder but even simple Process Builder does not work!!

It took me some time until I randomly put 18 char ID and it wallaahhh it works.Seriously, is there any documentation say Process Builder only receive 18 char ID ?

Let me know if you find it.For this time being , I will avoid using ID field in Process Builder.

Action Name need to be short SHORT?

You must specify a name for the action cal l.
To avoid this error , please choose Email Alert that popup from the field when you put the name.

You see this error although you already specify  action name for  email alert and wonder ... hey I already put the name!!

This is misleading error because actually it require you to put Action Name short.How short? You need to test it by yourselves.

Anyway, if you desperately need a longer name, put short name.Save then rename it Save.

Close the Process Builder and Open again ...meh

When I renaming Email Alert in separate tab, then add it in Process Builder in separate tab it will throw something
"Could not find Email Alert ..."

Although the Email Alert Name autopopulate in the field, ust close the Process Builder and try again.

It works.Well, seem restart always a solution.

Deploy active Process Builder -- it will not automatically active

Process Builder will not guaranteed to be active automatically when deployed.We need to manually activate Process Builder after we deploy it.

Share with me if you got issue with process builder?
