Hi Rodolfo - You can do this using Lightning Process builder not with the Validation rule. Using validation rules you can improve the quality of your data. Validation rules verify that the data a user enters in a record meets the standards you specify before the user can save the record. For your scenario, you have to update field in the the different object so using Lightning Process builder you can able to this. Check this link for more details about Process builder - https://developer.salesforce.com/trailhead/business_process_automation/process_builder

Hi rodolfo alcocer,

You cant update any field using validation rule, you can update any field using workflow or trigger ,
Use trigger as you want to update cross object

Thanks,
Amit

Hi Rodolfo - Unfortunately NO. The above mentioned methods will not support Group Edition. Group edition will allows only very base level of customization.
