SP13: Workflow Stage for Sending a Reminder Email While Waiting for a Status Change


  • SharePoint 2013 Workflow Question

    I want to have a workflow stage where SharePoints waits until there is a change in Status or the Current Due Date is equal to today.

    Specifically, If the Status changes, I want the workflow to proceed to the next stage, and if the Current Due Date is Today, I want a reminder email to go out and then wait for the Status to change.  I can get the Workflow to work when it's just Status changes, but I'm having trouble throwing a reminder email into the mix. 

    Any help on Actions I should use or should I use a different approach?

  • Hi LAGSNC,

    You need to create another workflow for sending reminder email.

    Pause the workflow until the due date, then check the Status value. If the Status value is not equal to the value you want (there is no change in Status), send the reminder email to the user.

    Best Regards,
