sharepoint 2007 10 mins email reminder before the event RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi expert,

    Can anyone please help me how to create a workflow for an email reminder 10 mins before the event?

    I cant really figure it out.. so far:

    Reminder:
    =[Start Time]-1/144

    Flow:
    If reminder is greater than Today
    Pause until Calendar:reminder
    then Email ....

    after I created a new task/event, I straight away get the notification.. not 10 mins before

    please help

    cheers

  • Intersting concept and one that carries a bt of a warning.

    You need to kick off the workflow when and item is created which means that you will have one workflow for each item in your list. If you list gets big then just be aware that you will have all these workflows running. When/if your SP farm gets rebooted then they will all try and re-start at the same time.

    But onto the problem

    I would do this with two steps...

    Step1 - Check to see if the reminder is in the past and stop the workflow

    Step 2 - pause until system time = reminder

    then email

    hope this helps
