How to send daily reminder for pending approval documents? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello friends!! I have a custom workflow with custom task list attached with a custom list. I want to send an alert/reminder to the approver daily till the status is "pending" for that document.

    Is any Out-of-Box functionality of SharePoint 2010 or I have to create any web part or event handler for that?

    or Any other option that can be added into workflow?

    Please send me  quick suggestion for that.

    thanks.

  • There isn't any OOB functionality which will allow you to send daily reminders.

    Since you have a custom workflow, you can place a delay activity for duration one day and send reminder emails till the time an action is taken.

    If you want to send reminder emails at a specific time for all users for all pending tasks, you can even think about writing a custom timer job, which reads the status and sends the email to the task assignee.
