    1. Hi You can use Scheduled Flows. Run a flow daily and get all the cases where verified = true and change their status to closed. Example : https://accidentalcoder.blogspot.com/2020/06/schedule-flows-salesforce.html

      Delete
  2. If there only was a way to gracefully handle autolaunched flow errors/exceptions. Any ideas?
