ok,
Please follow the process as below mention :
  • Open process process builder and click on new button.
  • Name of process builder and description, API name auto populated.
  • Choose your object , Second option i.e., when a record is created or edited and then save.
  • Add criteria name, criteria is "Conditions are met" and your condition will be ​​" your ff fields --> ischanged --> boolean --> true ,  condition is " All of the conditions are met (AND) " and save.
  • Next and last is Immediate action name, Records will be [Contacts] means self from which it ll executed, criteria for updating the records is " No criteria—just update the records! " , now set the field value i.e., your text field --> reference to --> ff fields

Hi Yaseen,

As per my understanding, you want to update the formula field(Text).

If Yes, then You can't update formula field using workflow or process builder. You can do one thing you can update the field which is using in formula field to reflect on formula field.
