I have created the sequential workflow in visual studio. I want to send email reminder before the due date on different interval and also if due date pass and user have not approved item then email should be sent.

How to send an email reminder in the sequential workflow?

  • For similar kind of activity, I have used console application. It runs daily and sends reminder mail accordingly. It gives better control to us than sequential workflow.
