enter image description hereI am creating a workflow for a HelpDesk list that will send a Manager a notification if a task has been outstanding for 2 days. I have successfully created the HelpDesk List/Workflow I just want the workflow to check to see a specific date and not send the Manager an email during the weekend. Is there any way around this? Below is a screenshot of my workflow so far


You can check the Saturday / Sunday in your pause date and add 1 or 2 days to the pause date. So the workflow can wait 2 or 3 or 4 days based on your logic.

The workflow can be modified as follows. enter image description here

EDIT: Add a plain text to the workflow variable enter image description here

EDIT: Set long date to a workflow variable enter image description here

  • Can I ask, where the Saturday & Sunday fields will come from? Or do I need to create them myself? – David Cunningham Jun 14 '17 at 13:34
  • They are simple text, not fields. I will add screenshot if need further – Venkat Konjeti Jun 14 '17 at 13:37
  • You just type text in the right side portion of the condition. – Venkat Konjeti Jun 14 '17 at 13:40
  • If you could add a screenshot that would be brilliant. When I attempt to add Saturday/Sunday as simple text it will not allow me to. – David Cunningham Jun 14 '17 at 14:16
  • In my screenshot you see there is .... You can click that to open a window to type your text – Venkat Konjeti Jun 14 '17 at 15:13
