Very similar problem to the one was previously sent. I'm using Sharepoint Designer 2007 trying to create a custom workflow on a document library. The customer is uploading documents and wants to set a due date for each one. I've created a due
date column in the library set as a date content type. This is a static field. The date they enter won't change unless they want it to. I've also set another date field to default to the current date. This field will change as the date changes. The customer
would like an alert email sent out one day after to the due date to the parties involved with a particular document or library.
Any help is appreciated. Thank you.
has very kindly suggest the following solution, BUT though I know how to create a variable on Workflow in Sharepoint design BUT not sure how to store value DueDate +1 to it?
Just create a workflow on item added & add the following steps.
- Create a workflow variable (say MailDate) and store the value DueDate-1.
- Use the activity Pause Until MailDate
- Send the mail with required contents.
- Stop the workflow.
As simple as this :)
