Using SP2016 workflow to push item from one list into another RRS feed

  • Question

  • I work in a restricted environment so unfortunately I cannot share my code.

    Here is my scenario: I would like to take the 'DueDate' column in my list and somehow with a workflow state that if the 'DueDate' reaches its date + 14days then I would like it 'pushed' into a new SP list. 

    I understand I will have to have the new list made before I create this workflow. 

    My question is which type of workflow do I choose since this will involve 2 separate lists and how do I create a workflow with this type of calculation ('DueDate' + 14 days).

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Best,

    Also, if anyone can also answer if there is a way to send an alert email via SP workflow which can alert a group if a certain SP list reaches 4,800 items that would also be extremely helpful. I believe I could use a 'Loop' to count through all the 'IDs' but any help here is appreciated also.

  • Hello CMB,

    You could use SharePoint designer to create a 2013 workflow on your list, the logic would like this:

    If DueDate+14 days equals Today, create new item in ListB.

    To do the caculation: 'DueDate' + 14 days, you could use the action "Add time to date". The sample workflow for your reference:
