I would like to terminate a workflow on due date. Is it possible to do so using SharePoint 2010 workflows? I was thinking of creating two parallel tasks and wait for the due date and terminate workflow.


Here I assume that you are creating a designer workflow.

you can compare the current date with the due-date of the task and if it matches then you can terminate the workflow using the workflow action in sharepoint designer.

  • Yes. Do I need to create a timer for this? – kidra.pazzo Sep 30 '15 at 10:16
  • no you dont need to create a timer, your workflow will run everyday ? – Vishwas Goswami Sep 30 '15 at 10:17
  • Not exactly. I have a workflow which do some tasks and creates an approval workflows. However, if the user does not approve or reject within the due date. the workflow is automatically approved. – kidra.pazzo Sep 30 '15 at 10:36
  • you can try to schedule the workflow as mentioned in this question, and then check for the duedate comparison result – Vishwas Goswami Sep 30 '15 at 10:43
