Send Email alerts before expiration date on wss3 site...... RRS feed

  • Question

  • Other than using SharePoint Designer or creating a workflow what other ways can be used to notify us  (by email) say, 2 weeks, before the expiration date in a list column is hit?

    TIA,

  • You can't.  Using SPD (which is a free product btw) you can pause email actions until a few days before the event.    Nothing in WSS 3.0 would cater for this as far as I'm aware.

  • Hi,

    I think Steven is right, you can use a workflow to send the email before the due date.

    Thanks,
