Hi,
I am trying to create an alert on a specific date field on an object that is time-based related. 

The issue is that both Process Builder and WorkFlow only fire when an object is updated or created, but not when a date becomes Today (naturally, without editing or creating the object's fields).

Here are my 3 separate use cases (each needs its own solution, but has the same problem):
1. On a custom object called "Project" we have a date-field called KICKOFF DATE.  When the date becomes today, we want an email alert to send out a reminder that today is kickoff date for this project.
2. When an Opp is in Stage 1 and it's Age = 60 days, we want to send an email alert that the Opportunity is 60 days old (from created date) and is in stage 1.
3. When an Opportunity is approaching the Close Date and is in a lower Stage, we want an alert to fire that says warns it is approaching.
So now I think I need a trigger to help fire this in Process Builder. 

Anybody ever had this need before or accomplished this?
