I created three lists,

  • department working period List, containing (department name, start work, and the end of the work),

  • Employee List, containing fields (employee's name, postal address, section belongs to it)

  • alerts List, containing fields (the name of the task, assign to, has executed (Yes No field)

My question is: How can I do workflow for the list, number 3, send an alert message every two hours for employees, during the period of work, until it is modified field, (has executed), to yes?

I could not stimulation only every two hours during the work period

I hope to benefit from the developers, thanks for your support

1 Answer 1


You could use a SharePoint 2013 workflow to that has logic similar to this:

Stage 1

  • Pause for 2 hours
  • If [Has Executed] equals Yes
    • Stop Workflow and Log Message
  • Else
    • Send Email to user

Stage Transition

Go to Stage 1
