Recurring workflow update requests based on date fields



This seems so straightforward I'm convinced I'm doing something wrong. I'm setting up an update request in a sheet that needs to be sent weekly until a checkbox is checked in a column. I can do this with no problems if I manually set the date from which to start the recurring updates. However, if I want to use a date field to then kick off this recurring update request, it doesn't appear to be an option.

I can either set the recurring update request based on a manual date I enter, or have it be sent once based on a date field (so I'd have to manually set up reminders for the following update requests 1 week after the date field, 2 weeks after the date field, etc.).

Am I going mad? Is this functionality not available? It seems like everything is there to make this happen but I can't figure it out!
