Running a daily check on a list field if the date is in the next week

Hi 

I need to run a daily Workflow check on a list filed to check that a date is in the next week, if so it will send out an email. So how do I set a daily Workflow running (in the Workflow Settings I can just see Start Manually or Start when items are created) and also how do I set a moving date. I've added a Set A Condition action and when I look at the Value to configure it's just letting me set a specific date.

Any suggestions?

are you doing this as a site workflow?

Hello again Casey! I've set it up as a workflow on the list. Would it be better to set it up as a site workflow?

In your example what type of variable is the vCllFilteredRecords? Is it a Collection?

So if I get your example right we're creating a date using the Calculate date action which is xxxMonths or Days in the future and querying it against the relevant date field?

Thanks! Why do I need to use the Log in history list action?

you absolutely don't.  I only do that during development to check all my calculations and outputs are what I expect.  you can delete them or disable them when you are happy the workflow is running as expected.
