Filter items with a date column with parameters start date and end date on a sharepoint list?

If I have alist with a view that has the columns Title, Status and Status Date and the view has some items. How Can I add a filter with two parameters, start date and end date, to only show records with status date equal to or greater than parameter start date and status date is less than or equal to parameter end date? This is a sharepoint online site and I can't create and deploy custom code, can use SPD though. Do I need to use SPD or is this something I can do in the list settings? Thanks in advance.   Edit: I had a look here http://www.endusersharepoint.com/2009/09/29/sharepoint-date-filter-filtering-a-list-by-greater-than-or-equal-to-date/ but I don't have the Date Filter web part.

Sending Email alerts before expire date on document (using Sharepoint Designer)


I need to trigger an email alert 2 weeks before the expire date on document (document library).


The document library has a List/Site Column for an Expiry date.

I need to clarify the following:


I assume it is possible to create a CALCULATED field (Alert Date) of DATE (assigned to List/Site Column) that would

have a formula of: Expiry date - 14 days. 


Is it possible to trigger a workflow (created in Sharepoint Designer) AFTER the Alert + Expiry dates have been set

and ONLY if the Alert Date  = Todays Date? 


Is it possible to add a variable in the workflow of type DATE that MAPPED to the current item 'UPLOADED' to the

Document Library and was calculated against the number of days to be subtracted?


If this was possible could it be bound to the PAUSE UNTIL DATE action?


The Workflow would only then be triggered (p

compare date field in sharepoint designer without considering time



I  set date1 field in sharepoint designer with “set field in current item” action. And in next step I want to compare date1 with another date field. With “if date1 not equal to date2”

although I set  “Date & Time Format” to “Date only”, my problem is sharepoint designer consider time ( although my condition is true ,I think its compare the time of my date field and cant go next step) and I don’t want it. I want to compare date filed only with date,

what should I do, that sharepoint designer only consider Date in Date field in action?

Thanx a lot.

SharePoint Designer Workflow - how to compare the Items if it is modified date is older than 20 days


I have a workflow which will keep track of specific meta data selection for a Custom List, as soon as an item gets updated to a specific selection say it as Resolved, I am sending an email to an user.


But after this I will need to check for every item in the list that If an item gets resolved and older than 20 days, I will have to move this item to a different list. I can get the resolved item date, store it an variable, but from here I will need to check if the item is older than 20 days and if it is this needs to be moved.

My point is the work-flows will be fired only when an item gets changed or updated, how to keep track of every item in the list and automatically move the older items without any manual intervention.


Am I clear in my requirement, if not kindly let me know.

If you have knowledge, let others light their candles in it.

I have a table containing courses, columns are 

Name - "Yoga Classes"

DateStart - "2/23/2010"

Guitar Class (10th Jan 2010 - 11th Jan 2010)


Yoga Class (15th Feb 2010 - 16th Feb 2010)

ReadOnly DateTime attribute stores correct date but only retrieves DateTime.MinValue on Delete


Hey everyone,

I have a dynamic data site that stores Event data using LINQ-to-SQL. When someone requests an event, it is first stored as a PendingEvent (which is a child of Event) with a column/attribute called receivedAt, which is [ReadOnly(true)] and which is assigned in InsertEvent as shown.

        partial void InsertEvent(Event instance)
            instance.requestedAt = DateTime.Now;




This works fine. The event displays with the correct receivedAt date, and it's correct in my database. It shows up just fine on my Display, Edit, and List pages. However, if I try to delete, the receivedAt in the instance (retrieved with my debugger) in my delete function is 01/01/0001 12:00am, also known as DateTime.MinValue. My other dates appear correct.

If I remove "ReadOnly(true)" from the received at, everything works fine. Why won't "ReadOnly" allow me to have a time?
Thanks in advance,



I forgot to mention why I care. I can't submit the instance to be deleted because DateTime.MinValue is outside SQL's available datetime, so I get a SQL error. The delete also takes place in a custom dele

how can I make field with date in format: dd/mm/yyyy ?

I have in model:[DisplayName("Publication date")] [DisplayFormat(DataFormatString = "{0:dd/MM/yyyy}", ApplyFormatInEditMode = true)] [Required(ErrorMessage = "Publication date is required.")] public DateTime publication_date { get; set; } And in view:<div> <%: Html.LabelFor(model => model.publication_date) %> </div> <div> <%: Html.TextBoxFor(model => model.publication_date, new { @class = "datepicker" })%> <%: Html.ValidationMessageFor(model => model.publication_date) %> </div> But when I write in this field date: 30/11/2009 I see validation error: The value '30/11/2009' is not valid for publication_date.

Is it possible to use multiple date fields to have an event show more than once on a Sharepoint 2007

Hello, Is it possible to use multiple sets of start and end times to have events display multiple times in a sharepoint calendar? To clarify: - I have the standard fields of "Start Time" and "End Time" in my calendar list. - Events show on the calendar just fine. - Would like to create additional fields called "Start Time 2" and "End Time 2" within the same record and have the event show multiple times on the calendar. - The recurrence functionality of sharepoint will not meet my needs because the pattern I need to use is not in one of the allowed choices. Thanks in advance, John

Sort WSS 3.0 Calendar by Start Date

How to start a workflow programmatically that was created in Sharepoint designer 2010?

Trying to start a workflow from code.  The workflow itself has been created in SPD 2010, which from what I understand, means that there is no assembly until the first time it's ran.  However, when I try to find the association record, that doesnt exist.  Is this becuase the 'code' hasnt been compiled yet?  If so, how can I have sharepoint start the just-in-time compiler for a declarative based workflow, so that can kick it off with in code? tia Rocky SandersRocky Sanders
