Decrement field value automatically using workflow in dataverse or dynamics 365

In Dataverse (formerly known as Common Data Service) or Dynamics 365, you can automate the decrementing of a field value using workflows. With this feature, you can set up automatic updates to your data, saving time and effort. The process of achieving this through workflows is fairly straightforward. Here's a general outline:

  1. Open your solution in Dynamics 365 or Dataverse.
  2. Create a new workflow.
  3. Select the trigger for your workflow.
  4. Define the conditions and criteria for the workflow to trigger.
  5. Select the action you want to perform; in this case, select the "Update Record" action.
  6. Select the entity that you want to update.
  7. Select the field that you want to decrement.
  8. Choose the operator "Decrement By" and set the value you want to decrement by.
  9. Save and activate your workflow.

Additionally, you can use other operator selections like "Increment By", "Set TO" and "Multiply by" to achieve different automation goals. Check out the link to get a more detailed step-by-step guide that takes you through these actions in a more targeted manner.

Overall, this feature helps you save time and ensure data accuracy by automating the repetitive task of decrementing field values in your Dynamics 365 or Dataverse solution.
