SharePoint Designer 2013 Workflow

    Question

  • I have created a calendar in SharePoint 2013 and customized it with columns: Trailer Number, Truck Number and Service Type, each items has a drop down menu.  I am trying to create a workflow for when someone select's "PM DUE" from the Service Type drop down menu, it will automatically place in the calendar the next time PM service is due on that truck or trailer number, 28 days later on the calendar.

    Thank You!

  • Hi

    Use Sharepoint designer 2013

    attach a workflow to your list,

    start if and check if the [ServiceType] column is PM DUE -fill the needed column with value

    Let me know if you need a real example

  • Thank you for the feedback. I am in SharePoint Designer, created a new List work flow for my calendar, but am still a bit confused. Do you mind giving me a real example please. Thanks you!!

  • Hi

    to recap

    you need a calendar list with one column, numeric one : [ TrailerNumber], the second one as a choice column [ServiceType]

    If value in [ServiceType]="PM DUE" then a new column , let's name it [EVENT_Calculated] will be equal to current item's event date + TrailerNumber

    Please confirm if so, to provide tou the solution

  • If this is the real scenario, check my real example ( without SharePoint Designer, an easiest way using calculated columns )
