Summary:

We have a workflow scheduled to run 1 month after an item is changed. If the item is changed on the 31st of the month, and the following month only has 29 days, when will workflow run? On the last day of the month? Or the beginning of the following month?

Product:

All Workflow for SharePoint on-premises

Answer/Solution:

The feature will actually add a month so if you’re scheduling the workflow today, 5/27/2010, the next scheduled run date will be 6/27/2010.    However, if the resulting day is not a valid day in the resulting month (for instance if I schedule the workflow on 5/31/2010 and there is no 6/31/2010 actual date), the last valid day of the resulting month is used (the workflow would run on 6/30/2010).
