I am new to SharePoint, especially SharePoint 2013...

I have created a workflow via SharePoint Designer 2013 with the following conditions- If a new document is created with the "Date Created" equaling today, an email notification will be sent out.

If says "Completed" in the workflow taskbar but no email is ever sent nor is there any history within the workflow history.

Does anyone know that might be wrong?

I have been able to created other workflows and have email notifications in the past and today.

Thanks in advance! Amanda

Date Created returns date and time, but Today returns only date (12:00 AM). So they are not equal, and your condition is never true. You can check this by logging these values into history list (there is a special action for this).

I'm not sure this solution fits you, but you can change equals condition to equals (ignoring time), then workflow should work.
