Its helps you to automate your businesses process like sending an email, Crating a task, updating the records etc. and also you can view the visual representation of your process.

  3. Email Alert
  4. Flow
  5. Post to Chatter
  6. Quick Actions
  7. Submit for Approval
  8. Update a Records

Difference between process builder and workflow

Process builder support all the feature of workflow along with that its support some additional feature which is listed below.

  1. Create a record
  2. Update any related records
  3. Use a quick action to create a record, update a record, or log a call
  4. Launch a flow—as an immediate or a scheduled action
  5. Post to Chatter
