Parent object field as a criteria in workflow/process builder

Hi All,

I am new to salesforce and learning on it. I have a difficulty while using a workflow/process builder. 

I have two custom objects, say Result (parent) and Score (Child), with a master detailed relationship.

I want to write a workflow such that it uses both child object field and parent object field as criteria for process builder.

Ex. If Result is >=80, and Score.name = Maths and Score.marks >=90 , then a email alert should fire.

I tried to write the workflow on Score object (child), but since I am using the parent object field (result) in the criteria, workflow is not triggering. 

Could you please help me on this case.

Thanks in advance.

Hi Venkat,

This is verymuch possible in a process builder.
Can you please let me know if you are getting any error?

Hello Nirmal,

Thank you very much for your response. I am not getting any error in process builder. The email alert which configured is not firing. Just want to know how to proceed further.
