Just wondering, is there a way to schedule (e.g. 1st day of each Month) a workflow or send email notification for a list, without using powershell or C# code.

  • Workflows aren't meant to be timer jobs. That's what timer jobs are for. So there's not a sensible way to achieve this with an OOTB workflow. The only option that comes to mind is having a loop check the date constantly and relying on SP to rate-limit it by default (which it does, but if you're looking for month-long gaps there's still going to be a lot of unnecessary calls going on). – TZHX Dec 21 '12 at 8:50
  • For this purpose you can use 3rd party solutions, for example plumsail.com/workflow-scheduler – Roman Apr 12 '14 at 13:37
