Got a list where a user needs to fill out a date field and when that date arrives confirmation email will be sent. All good I could do if date = today and it will send the email. How I could do that if it is date+2 from today. I read about pause until date but there is some kind of problems?

  • Its SharePoint On-Premises? 2013? There is no problem with the delay and wait until 2days. The workflow will be in state Running, internally saved to Workflow queue and after this OWSTimer will proceed it. Commented Jan 16, 2019 at 9:39
  • I am using SP 2013 Commented Jan 16, 2019 at 10:27

Use simply Pause Until Action in SharePoint Workflow. There aren't any problems.

  • And it isn't working for me. I am not getting the email Commented Jan 16, 2019 at 13:04
  • What Date is inside this action? About it, if it'S today's date probably this email will come tomorrow. I dont know if this is pause until less than or pause until equal, so you must try it, but you need more days for testing, like set todays and tomorrow date and wait what to workflow will do.
