the workflow i need to attached on multiple list containing similar kind of data.Guys please help....
You've likely already tried Reminders in Assign Flexi Task and discovered the limitations. I often build reminder functions for specific use cases.
You've got a few routes you can take to get this done:
One thing to note. If you're trying to do this across multiple lists you could look at either copying the reminder workflow on to multiple lists OR using a Site Workflow. However, Site workflows come with limitations, and may be tricky to implement for your use case.
I don't know all the details given the description of your scenario, but my hunch is multiple list workflows is the way to go.
If this answer didn't get at what you needed give us a bit more detail. I guess what I'm getting at is, you've basically said you want a reminder to kick off 60 days prior to a day and then 14 days. I'm making assumptions with this answer.
Thanks for the help.
My exact requirement is like below . You can check in the below screenshot that there are two date related fields 1. next review date and 2. review begin date(calculated column).
user has to enter value in the next review date field and review begin date will get a value automatically 2 months prior to that. ex.
if somebody enters a next review date 4\21\2016 than review begin date will get value 2\22\2016(60 days difference). and our workflow should start sending reminder mail prior 1 week of review begin date(2/15/2016) and should start sending it on a weekly basis (15,22,29 and so on ) until the document status is not completed by owner or next review date has been changed. please provide me the steps in a picture and if possible as i have no idea of workflow.
i want to use that workflow in multiple libraries(u can check on the left hand side of the screen shot).
Thanks in advance.
Hi, here is the solution I use regularly to manage alerts on my applications Nintex :
1. Get intervals of the alert that you want :
2. Split your intervals :
3. Make a foreach action on each interval :
4. Foreach interval i calculate the date alert for query the concerned data :
5. Query your list to get item concerned by the alert (I have a custom field on my item called End Alert) :
6. Now you have a collection of IDs for the current alert interval (60 or 30 or 15 or 0) and you can make your custom logic in a foreach action : from an ID get item property (created by...) and send a notification or something else
So you can inspire you this logic to create more alerts x days before the due date of a task and send the notification to the Assigned To field.
Thank you very much for your time and input.
I cannot create a new list on the production server so i need to create a workflow on the existing libraries without creating new list or liabrary.
It will be very helpful if you can provide me the solution under the mentioned condition.
thanks once again in advance.
I can make you an example during the week of course.
If you cannot create a settings list, just create a site workflow (scheduled every morning) and put settings directly in a variable : alertIntervals = 60;10;0;
If I'm not clear, send me an email, I will send you an example.
