Query regarding Parallel Processing Blocks in Project Server 2013 Workflow RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello Experts,

    I have a requirement in a Site Workflow as follows :

    1. Whenever a list item of a partcular list gets changed within a time span of 5 days, it must send an email remainder to users

    2. And without the item of that list getting changed, the workflow must send another notification email on everyday for 5 days

    So this requires a parallel processing, as when I add a 'List Action' as : "Wait for an Event : When an item is changed" for sending the mail described in point 1, the workflow will wait till a list item is changed. If none of the item changes for 5 days, then no mail will be sent, and the workflow will simply wait till then. 

    But say i need to send a mail on 2nd day from the workflow to all users, then how can i achieve it, as the Workflow is waiting here for an event on the list item to happen.

    I tried using the "Parallel Block" in the Workflow designer and used a condition over there and tried sending a mail from that block, but that is resulting in the 'Cancellation of Workflow'.

    Can anybody guide me how to achieve this in a simple way? 

    Thanks,

    Shanky
