SharePoint 2007 - Custom Approval Workflow RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All,

    I'm creating a custom Approval Workflow in SharePoint 2007.

    The approval side I have no problem with, however, I have a requirement for the the originator of a document/form to be contacted after 30 days to review the document to ensure the data is still correct.

    I am new to SharePoint, so please be gentle if I'm missing something glaringly obvious.

    Thanks in advance.

  • Try the following actions present in SharePoint Designer workflow

    • Get the crated date of the document and store it into a variable using 'Set workflow variable' option
    • Using 'Add time to Date' action you can add 30 days and store the date at which the originator of the document should be contacted
    • lastly you can use 'Pause until Date' option to perform some action after 30 days
