How do I stop a workflow until a specific date is reached?

Jump to solution

I created a workflow for a team where a user will send a request to an IT team for development.  Below are the high level steps of the workflow:

After customer submits the request via SharePoint, the workflow will: 

1. Email mgr to let him know a request has been submitted

2. Prompts manager to assign the request to a developer

3. Sends email to developer

This is all working fine.  However, the manager has asked if, on step #2, he can enter a start date.  Then, the workflow continues to step #3 on that date.  In other words, Step #3 will be configured so that the developer will receive the email on the date entered by the manager in step #2. 

I have added a Start Date prompt in Step #2 and have stored the date in the list.  How do I go about holding Step #3 until the  start date?

Does this make sense?

Have you looked at the "pause until" action? Not at my machine to check but you should be able to enter your date item property in there.
