Sharepoint 2007 Disposition Approval Workflows do not start when Info Mgmt Policy Expires RRS feed

  • Question

  • We are still using SP2007 and trying to setup an expiration policy a Document library.

    I've setup an doc lib with a new site column called ExpireDate (as a date type column) and added docs to the doc lib and set the expiredate values to a sequence of dates.  I've setup a disposition approval workflow for it and I've set up an info mgmt policy in the doc lib to fire the workflow 1 day after the ExpireDate of a document occurs.  I can start the workflow manually on a single document and it works fine but it never fires the workflow automatically. 

    I've got another example where it does work successfully using the modified date for firing the disposition workflow 1 day after the last modifed date.  Is there any reason why the workflow won't automatically fire on a custom site column?
