    Hi Suryadeep,

    WorkFlow Rules can do these actions

    • Create Task
    • Update Field
    • Email Alert
    • Outbound Message

    Whereas Process Builder can do these actions

    • Create a record
    • Update any related record
    • Use a quick action to create a record, update a record, or log a call
    • Launch a flow
    • Send an email
    • Post to Chatter
    • Submit for approval
    • Call apex methods
    • But the process builder doesn’t support outbound messages.

    Process Builder is a combination of Flow and Workflow rule. In other words, we can say that it’s the next level of Workflow rule, that allows us to automate your business process by creating Processes with point-and-click.

    Hope this helps you.
