I'd like to create a monthly email reminder (the 1st of every month). also would like actions to update "Due Date" + 1 month. new to SP Designer 2013. I dont see any Action to "Send email on the 1st of each month" is there a way with loop or some other action?
Do want just a reminder email that is not tied to anything? Or one that is tied to a task that stops with the task is completed?
If just a reminder:
- create a recurring event in your Outlook calendar, or
- Create a recurring event in a SharePoint calendar, and then set an Alert on the calendar.
A workflow can loop and will follow this pattern: (A SharePoint 2013 style workflow)
The workflow has a Loop, and inside of the loop, an email Action and a Pause Action. This example loops forever. More likely you would replace the "1 equals 1" with a test for a changed column, maybe the Status column of a task list, so a user will get a reminder until the task is completed.
