I want to create a SharePoint workflow on a list. In such a way that a notification will be sent to the owner of the task ("Assigned To" field) every week starting at least 8 weeks in advance of target mitigation date?

Could you please suggest me how to achieve this.


SharePoint Designer workflow:

Create 8 variables that are the desired date minus x amount of time

If status != completed then send email to [current item: assigned to] Pause until variable: week 8

Repeat 8 times with corresponding pauses

  • Thanks for your reply.I have setup a workflow based on your suggestion.I have one question 1)When we edit an existing event, the workflow running on the event will abort and new workflow starts? – Samba Mar 3 '14 at 14:48
  • Sounds like you should check when/how you have the workflow being initiated. – mike.fisher Mar 9 '14 at 2:42
