Starting Workflow daily

    Question

  • Hello,

    I have the need to send notification emails to users based on information from one list library.

    And started creating workflow.

    How can I initiate the workflow without some modification of the items?

    I need this to be run once per day .. but any kind of workaround is acceptable also.

    Thank you in advance

  • Hi Danail,

    I have created email reminder system using SharePoint 2010 workflow in SPD which sends email to user after every 24 hours.

    For this purpose I create two lists called Primary1 and Secondary1.

    Primary1 contains three fields; Title, LastReminderTime (datetime field) and NextReminderTime (this is calculated field which adds 24 hours in LastReminderTime field)

    Secondary1 contains two fields; Title, LastReminderTime (datetime field)

    This is how it works:

    Create a "P workflow" on Primary1 runs and pauses till NextReminderTime comes at which it sends email to user and then sets LastReminderTime field in "Secondary1" list with value of "NextReminderTime" in "Primary" list.


     Create a "S workflow" on Secondary1 runs and immediately sets "LastReminderTime" in "Primary" with its own "LastReminderTime"


    Note: make the two workflow start automatically when an item is changed.

    Create an item in Primary1 list with LastReminderTime (which is a date and time is always starts at 12am, for e.g. 2017-4-20 12:00am). NextReminderTime will be set as 2017-4-21 12:00pm), create an corresponding item in Secondary1 list with the same id as the item in Primary1.

    Then start the workflow "P workflow", it will send an email to user after every 24 hours.
