    Hey Shafali,

    Yes you can schedule your class using process builder. For this you have to make your class method as an @InvocableMethod for the static method only and only one argument is being passed in that method which will be of type list<p>.

    For help and more knowledge see this link http://www.forcewizard.com/blog/invoking-apex-class-process-builder.

    Or you can directly schedule the apex class while selecting object just check the advanced checkbox and add apex through actions and set the schedule according to your need. For more information go through this link- https://help.salesforce.com/apex/HTViewHelpDoc?id=process_limits_scheduled.htm&language=en_US

    Thanks.

    You can call apex method from process builder in which you can write code to schedule batch apex. To call a method in process builder you need to add annotation @InvocableMethod while defining method.

    Hi Shafali,

    yes we can, In actions section of process builder, we can execute apex method as well. This is the main advantage of process builder as we cannot execute the apex class using flows or workflows.
