Workflow for Recurring Tasks RRS feed

  • Question

  • Is there a way in CRM to build a workflow that schedules recurring tasks.  Ex: I want to call a client on the 15th of every month?.  I would like the workflow to send an email to remind me of this call.

    Thanks

  • It is very much possible using OOB workflow designer.

    Create a date field named Next execution date and set it to when you want to execute your workflow. Then use wait step in your workflow and wait untill that date is reached.

    just after your wait statement add another statement to update date field by adding 1 month to it as below:

     

    Wait Unitl Next Execution Date

    Update Next Execution date = Workflow Execution Date + 1 Month

    ------

    Call this workflow again
