Day & Week before reminder



I would like to set a day before and a week before reminder that references a Due Date column I have in my sheet and only triggers on weekdays. Is there a way to do this?

Thank you for your help!

    Hi @MBMaddox

    I hope you're well and safe!

    Try something like this.

    • Add a so-called helper column (Name: Weekday, Type: Dropdown list)
    • Add the formula below to that column and make it a column formula
    • =IF(Starting@row <> "", WEEKDAY(Starting@row)) (Update the column name to match yours)
    • Set up a Workflow like the screenshot below.
    • Duplicate the Workflow and change the Run once to 1 week before

    Did that work/help?

    I hope that helps!

    Be safe, and have a fantastic weekend!
