    Hi saurabh,

    Currently we do not have any specific order of execution,apart from the fact that all workflow field updates.Incase of multiple field updates,there is not presently any way to control the order in which field updates occur (unless you make them time-triggered). Immediate actions can be said to execute in parallel -- they are not necessarily sequential -- so there may not even be an order.

    If you really need an order then you could do your updates from an Apex trigger instead.

    Kindly mark this as an answer in case this resolves the issue.

    Hi Saurabh,

    In Workflow, there’s no way for you to determine which order your workflow rules run in. So there’s always a risk of one rule overwriting what another did.

    But if you really want to find it out which workflow is finally changing your field. You can have 2 possible ways:

    1. Check the field update values of your workflow actions.
    2. Set the debug log level with workflow set as "finer".

    But, yes its not possible to track the order of workflow execution.

    Hope this helps you more.
