I am creating Workflow using SharePoint designer to send the email notification if the date field (revise date) is empty.

I just cant find anything to check if the date field is empty?

Can you please help?

You can compare the date column variable with default Empty Date Field value which is '01/01/0001'.

As a workaround you can also create a hidden date field in SharePoint & compare other date column with this hidden empty field.

We recommend that you use MS Flow to implement your design.

In my testing:

1.Create new list named "Flow" and create some columns in this list

enter image description here

2.On the Flow list, click Integrate >> Power Automate to create new Flow.

enter image description here

3.MS Flow:

  • a.Add the "Recurrence" Trigger:You can customize the trigger period and frequency
  • b.Add the "Get items" Action
  • c.Add the "Condition" Action enter image description here
  • d.On the "If yes" branch. add the "Send an email(V2)" Action

4.Save and Test this flow.

  • thanks for your comment, however I need to do this with SharePoint designer
