I'm trying to set a "Reminder Date" field in a task list to 3 days prior to the Due date. Unfortunately, I need to use SharePoint Designer's workflow designer. I have the following workflow so far, but it has two problems:
- The condition check always fails. I've read this is the best way to check if a date field is null, is that not the case?
- If I remove the condition just to see if any update will work, the "Reminder Date" column always gets 1/1/1900 in it.
(Both the workflow and the update dialog are shown)
UPDATE: After some more debugging, it looks like CurrentItem:Due Date is always empty, even though I'm setting it while testing and the workflow is set to run on item creation. Any idea why that might be?
