Sharepoint workflow - how to send notification based on date field
Asked by Boydwspoon
Posted Nov 08 2012 02:56 PM
I am new to sharedpoint and am trying to create a workflow that sends an email notification 3 days before an expiration date.
I have a database and have created a colum for Reminder date (expiration - 3 days). This is calculating fine. I would like the workflow to automatically send an email when the reminder date is reached. I have set it up in work flow as a run if: the reminder date equals (ignoring time) the workflow contntext "current date", then send the email. It seems simple but each day I come in there is no email.
Also, is there a way to make a workflow run automatically each day?

Hi Chris. Did you ever get a resolution to this problem? I am trying to do almost the exact same thing and cant seem to figure it out. If you got it working, I'd love to hear how. thanks
