I am working with SharePoint 2013 Designer Workflow. I am not sure how to Send Email notification if task is not completed before 7 days of a Due Date.

1 Answer 1


Typically you'd create a new workflow on the task list the triggers on item creation. It is set to pause until the due date minus 7 days. Then you do a check to see if the status is not complete. If that's the case, you send an email.

  • I am using the same Task list for different workflows but the Notification should be sent to only one workflow and also in that workflow in one stage. But if i run the workflow in Task list for Due Date it will send emails to all the workflows. And also all stages in that particular workflow. Is there any other option?

  • Then you'd put some conditional logic to check for a content type or field or status that if it meets the condition, then pause. If not then the workflow just exits without doing anything. Commented May 1, 2014 at 15:05
  • In my case if Task assigned To is a group then workflow should run and if it is assigning to User then it should not run. How to write condition for this?

  • Are the groups SharePoint groups? You might be able to determine it by doing a substring/regex on the assigned to field. Commented May 1, 2014 at 18:39
  • yes they are sharepoint groups
