Elapsed Date Thingamabob?


I am new to smartsheet and I have a lot to learn. Any help on this would be greatly appreciated. I am looking for a way to send a notification if the "approved" column is blank and 10 days have elapsed since the date in the "Date submitted" column. I have been working on this for at least 3 hours and I have not found anything that would help. TIA.

    In your workflow, have the conditions set to "Approved" is blank and "Date Submitted" is not in the last 10 days.

  • RoseMiller

    In order to trigger the notification you can either run the automation daily at a set time and then set the conditions that "Approved" is blank and "Date Submitted" "is not in the last (days)" (enter 10)


    You could create a column for "Approve by date" which equals Submit Date +10

    Then you set your trigger on the "Approve by Date"
