Run If date not blank

Hi, I have a task list that I have a workflow running on. The workflow does a number of things, but it is dependent on the due date being populated. I am trying to figure out a way to either conditionally start, or run an if statement in the workflow, if the date is not blank. Of course, there is no option for is blank and I am having an issue figuring out a way around it.


After some searching on the forums, I found some similar situations, but they were for on-prem and I couldn't get it to work on O365. Hoping someone can help.

I have successfully achieved this by creating a workflow variable whichever type called 'varBlank' and don't add a default value.

"Run if" the date is not equal to varBlank

Thanks, that worked. I had seen it posted as a solution elsewhere, I just kept trying to set the value to blank and that didn't work. Just creating the workflow and not doing anything to it worked. Thanks again!
