I have created a new workflow in SharePoint designer 2013 in which when a date has been reached then the users needs to be informed that one section if missing needs to be completed. But I want to know that how can I do it automated because there are 3 options with the checkbox which says in short:

  • When an item is created
  • Changed
  • Manual start

How can I do this is SharePoint Designer 2013 so that it knows when a date has been approached and will inform the user about it. Without any change in the list.

You can trigger your workflow on When an item is created trigger.

Then you need to use Pause Until Date action in SharePoint designer 2013 workflow which:

Causes a workflow to pause executing until a specified date and time.

After this workflow action, you can send an email to your targeted users to inform to fill necessary information.
