This may be far-fetched, but I am wondering if it is possible to allow a User to schedule a workflow to execute at a Custom Date/Time? Whereby the User does this via a Form?
If this is not possible, my current 'Plan B' would be to have a pre-defined reoccurring workflow schedule setup in K2 Management, whereby an interval is set (for example, every 30 minutes).
I'm starting to think 'Plan B' is probably the better way to go about doing this. However I wanted to explore all options at the moment. The only 'observation' with Plan B is how often I would need to run the schedule (i.e. every 30 mins, every 5 mins etc.). Which will be determined by requirements further down the line...

Yes, your plan A is definitely possible. You can pass the start date as a data field to your new workflow instance and then have a timer activity as the first step that won't start until you reach the provided date/time. This is a pretty vague answer I know, if you need more details I can dig further but hopefully this will get you started.
