Can anyone tell me if a timer job can be set up to send an email at the end of each day if a new entry/entries is made to a submission page? I want it to notify the intended person if they get new entries once a day, and how many new entries they have.

  • can you add more description? your actual requirement is confusing. Do you want to know how to trigger timer job end of the day or others? – Atish Dipongkor - MVP Oct 15 '15 at 11:50

  • yes. I need to know how to set up a timer job, and have it trigger at the end of the day to email a specific person (based on what the submission was) but I only want it to email them if there is a new submission(s). – J. Osborn Oct 15 '15 at 12:11

Yes it is possible using a SharePoint 2010 Custom timer job. Refer the below link for the steps to create a custom timer job programmatically.


In the example given in the above link, the time job has been scheduled to run for every five seconds using SPMinuteSchedule class. To make your timer job run at the end of every day you may use the code given below which uses SPDailySchedule class,

SPDailySchedule dailySchedule = new SPDailySchedule(); 
dailySchedule.BeginHour = 21; 
dailySchedule.BeginMinute = 0; 
dailySchedule.BeginSecond = 0;

The above code schedules the timer job to run every day at 9PM. For more details refer the below link
