Workflow - Notify # action items SP2010 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I just started working with sharepoint this month and I'm currently working on creating a workflow that send a notification whenever a certain user has 2 action items. The thing is that I can't figure out (I have absolutely no idea) how to create this condition in the workflow

    I'm using SharePoint Designer 2010.

    Thank you everyone,

    Sorry for delayed reply.

    You could loop through the list item, find the warning of one. Then compare the created time of the last warning with the current time, if it is more than 30 days, you could send the email to the user’s manager. You could use the “Find Interval Between Dates” action in workflow to compare the date.

  • Hi Alejandro Orozco Lopez,

    What do you mean that the user has 2 action items?

    If the action items are the list items, you could loop through the list and check if there are two items created by the same user. If there is, you could send the notification to the user.

  • Hi,

    I have a list where I track the number of times a user has received a warning due to committing an insecure activity and each is valid for a 30 day period. Once an user has 2 "valid" warnings I send a notification to the user's manager.  

    I want to have the manager's notification automatic using a workflow.

    Thank you Sara!
