Do you need DATE fields to work in workflow automation? (e.g. automated notification if customized date or expected close date changes)

    It is frustrating to have date fields not behave the same way as other fields when creating automations. My use case if having an estimated start date on a deal and I'd like to trigger a slack notification if one of my sales team changes the start date.

    It believe they have over complicated this and want to add date dependencies based on date field value. Which would be awesome, but for a for minimal effort perspective, they should simply track regular statuses of that field first (empty, changed, etc). This would already give a huge value for a little effort for users.

    I still work with a workaround - (zapier + filter based on time period) + workflow automation

    In my opinion, there are too many limitations yet on workflow automations. we should be able to trigger off of lead generation, lead activity, dates (custom date field, estimated close date etc...)

    I have to work around this via Zapier, in our case we need Deals to change stage at certain date (Custom Field value)

    I’m amazed this isn’t supported yet. I’m simply looking to trigger an email to the deal owner if and when a date is changed in the deal details and to be able to display that new date in the email body. Very surprised this can’t be done.
