We have a task list which I wanted to send out daily reminders when tasks are coming due. I created 2 workflows, one that uses the pause until time feature so it will run everyday and another to actually send the reminders if the due date is within a week.
This works fine; however, the email reminder just has a recap of the task that is due. When you create an alert in Sharepoint, you get an email which is a "Sharing Message" type in Outlook. This not only has all the details of the task; but also has links to the site; task list; mobile view; etc all integrated right in Outlook. It is a better experience.
I want to combine the two. I essentially want to convert my outgoing email from my workflow above to look like/act like the normal alerts (sharing messages) from sharepoint.
Any help would be appreciated.
