delete the workflow which is in started state RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All,

    I have a list workflow in SPD 2013 and that sends the due date reminder email based on the due date column of my list.

    For ex, Today is 17/07/2020 and my due date is 03/08/2020 and my workflow sends the due date reminder on 01/08/2020 which is two days before the due date. 

    Now when I create any item in the list, the workflow is started state. and I have another column in my list and If that is updated before due date.. i dont want to send the email. 

    For my case even its updated, the due date reminder will trigger.

    Please help on this issue

    Thanks in Advance

  • Add an If branch in the workflow to check for certain conditions. Skip to the end step if the proper conditions aren't met.

  • Hi MohanaG, 

    You can judge whether a special column is changed before due date, if a a special column is changed, set "Send Reminder " to No.

    Then check like for current list item "Send Reminder " is set to Yes/No. if send Reminder is set to " Yes" then go next. check todays date match with EventReminderDate.
