Time based Workflow actions to execute: X Days From Now


I'm having issues with some PB and wondering if doing something wrong.

When building a Scheduled Action in pb, it gives 2 options. 1- x Days after "Date Field", or 2- X Days from now

What does Now represents?

Is ti the equivalent of workflow "X Days after rule trigger date"?

Or Now = moment i created PB?

Or something else?

Looked everywhere and nowhere seems to explain this clearly

From now means, whenever your process builder will be triggered.

You have defined that while creating a process builder i.e The process starts when - A record changes or it is invoked by another process
And after that you have mentioned some criteria to execute the further actions.

So basically when the condition will met and your process builder will be triggered at that time your schedule action will be executed too (now).

Now doesn't mean that it will be executed at the moment when you have created process builder.

Hope this clears the concern.
