I created a list workflow 2013 in SPD2013 to send an email as a notification.
It is activated on item create, checks for Date column and if there is more than 24h till that date&time it gets to pause state. On 24h until Date it gets to active state again and sends an email to listed user(s) from item.

What I didn't do is that workflow sends email on Friday(s) if Date column is Monday(s). For now workflow is reactivated on Sunday(s) what I don't want.
Basically I want my workflow to work only on workdays, if Date is Monday, send email on Friday, if Date is Tuesday, send email on Monday, etc.
Any hint or help how to solve this?

what about using a timer job instead of workflow? You could collect the necessary data a lot easier and control the time of sending mail once a day.

  • Create an additional column which uses a calculated Weekday Function
  • This column outputs as number (Sunday as 1, Monday as 2 and so on)
  • Using this number, you can update your condition in the workflow step.
