Workflows can include wait conditions. Have you explored those?

Hi tommym121,

If it is for a process running every night, check this link for more information

You will have to change it to 1 day instead of 1 month and you can trigger it by a program or do it manually once after midnight to beging the cycle.

Regards,
Chinmay.

I don't see anything that give a specific time.  The reason is I want to run some background workflows after midnight so as not to degrade CRM performance during daytime.

Exactly. You have to initiate it once at that specific time. That's why I mentioned you have to do it manually at that time or just make an application that will do it once for you. After that it will initiate after whatever wait time you have specified.
