Using Sharepoint 2010 Designer or Infopath 2010, I would like to create timed email reminders after an item is created.

My idea is:

  1. If a field is empty, send an email out 3, 7, and 14 days after the item was created.
  2. If the field is not empty, do not send those emails and/or cancel the previous email workflow.

Is this possible with list workflows or does it need to be developed? Unfortunately, I do not have access to VB Studio and I don't have the ability to install third-party apps.

One way to solve this is with a secondary workflow that waits 3 days and sends a reminder, waits another 4 days, sends a reminder, etc. You can have a parallel action that waits until the field has a value and then stop the workflow.
