Pause until 1st of every month

Jump to solution

Hi,

I am stuck in the below question.

I have a user who will upload a document to a library. I want an email to go out only on the following month's 1st day.

Eg: If user uploads file on Aug 25th, then email will go out on Sept 1st.

How can I attempt to do  this? The workflow has to be triggered via the user upload only. (the file name changes and user who uploads it changes as well so I cannot use user name/file name as criteria)

I can make the workflow wait until certain date but I cannot assign 'custom date/time' to this action. Any help is appreciated!

I would try a different approach. Once user uploads a file a workflow sets a flag, ex. SendNotifcation=1.

 Then you create site workflow with schedule set to fire it every month. The scheduled workflow looks up your file upload library taking files with the flag set to 1, and for each sends the notification + sets flag to 0.

 Does it make sense for you?
