Order of Triggers and Process Builder

New to Salesforce.

I'm creating a fairly complex process in Process Builder on the Opportunity object.  When the record is saved I want to trigger and calculated some dates and do a few other checks to make sure only valid option types are entered.  Therefore, I want Process Builder to run after I do the Save trigger.  I couldn't find any documentation on this.

Hi Bill,

Welcome! According to the documentation on Triggers and Order of Execution (https://developer.salesforce.com/docs/atlas.en-us.apexcode.meta/apexcode/apex_triggers_order_of_execution.htm), it looks like what you want to accomplish can be done using the trigger as you mentioned as well as a validation rule(s) to do the checks. You might want to read up on the OOE that might be the direction you want to go in. If I understand your requirements, I believe salesforce already executes in the order that you want it to. This is good news!

Feel free to ask any further questions on the matter. I will be more than happy to help you out.

Hope this helps!
