  • Hi Osher Hen,

    Yes, you can create the workflow to send email to the owner 3 days before Due Date.

    We can use the “Add Time to Date” and “Pause until Date” actions in the workflow.

    There is a workflow for your reference.


    I am afraid that the workflow cannot be triggered when the file attached to list item. So we cannot achieve your requirement to create the workflow that can upload file automatically to a specific folder when the file is attached to list item.

    You could consider developing custom code to achieve it.

  • Hi Osher Hen,

    If you want to achieve the same requirement by the custom code, you could use timer job and server object model.

    There is a similar post:

    And if the reply is helpful to you, you could mark the reply as answer. Thanks for your understanding.
