I'm trying to set up custom reminder on calendar item as so, each individual item has field called "reminder" which is number field, of course it's SharePoint calendar so I have also:


Start Date

End Date


Status (Not checked yet, checking... , done) 

Etc etc ... 


Now I want the get email notification like so:


 a. StartDate - reminderNum

b. sendMsg


I mean, if today minus the reminder day should be equals to... what? 

I can't figure it out. 

When reminderNum is lets, 2 days

Event set for 7/26 startDate

That means I want the reminder for 7/24, right? 

So I do I calculate it on workflow?


I know i need to use the

Calculate Date -> maybe Build a string to store the diff between both days and then what?
