Go a head in SPD and click a workflow-->List workflow-->give the name that you want-->click action button on the ribbon-->find send email

  • Thank you, the workflow worked in the first time, but after i edited it, it is no longer working. It indicated the "internal Status" Suspended???. How do i know the workflow is published to the pages (SharePoint Online)that i wanted it to be?

As Explained by Mathew, you can create rules and set IF conditions based on your specific criteria. You can setup the email notification task to be sent to your list column for 'Drafter' and use the fields in the email body display the Project Title dynamically. Make sure your workflow is attached to your list. And also make sure that the workflow is configured to run when an item is created and modified.
