Task List custom workflow (emal reminder) question RRS feed

  • Question

  • I tried to create a custom workflow for the OOB tasklist in SP2007 that will send an email to the task owner one day before the task is due. I created the workflow using the following settings:

    ###########

    All start options are checked

    Conditions:

    Actions: Add -1 day to Task:Due Date(Output to Variable:ReminderDate)
                 Then Pause until Variable:ReminderDate
                 Then Email Tasks:AssignedTo

    ###########

     The problem I have is that if the Task Due Date gets changed once the task is initially created, the reminder still gets sent out based on the original due date, not the new one. I had hoped that checking the third start up option "Automatically start this workflow whenever item is changed" would cover the case where the Due date got changed, but it does not.

    Can anyone suggest a way to handle this condition?

    Best regards,
