Workflow to send emails only on business days RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am trying to create a workflow that will send emails only on business days.  Is there any way that I can set up a clause that will stop the workflow on Saturday and Sundays?  Any other workarounds would be appreciated also.

  • Well, this can be achieved by writing a custom workflow activity that checks if current date time is business day then send email otherwise wait until condition is true. You can use same workflow assemblies as mentioned by Rob Boyers.

    Hope this helps,

  • Thank you for the suggestion.  This plug-in looks great!  I am just waiting to make sure that my organization will allow me to install it.  If not, I will have to try and use the source code to do it.
