Office 365 Alerts with a custom schedule feature

December 8, 2016

Office 365 Alerts add-in by Virto has the new ability to send an Office 365 email reminder with a specific schedule based on a list’s date field value.

1. Same date.

You can send an Office 365 alert on the same date as the date from a chosen field value. In this case, you need to set the exact time when the alert will be sent.

2. Before or after X number of days.

Another option is to send an Office 365 alert before or after X number of days from a date based on a specified field value (“Due Date” in the following example). You can set the exact sending time for “After” and “Before” options as well.

3. A day count from a number type field value. 

Also, you can send an Office 365 alert according to a day count from a value from a custom number type field. For example, you have created in a list the Due Date field and a custom number type field.

Select the option “Send on date from a field value” and choose, for example, Due Date field. Then you can assign a count of days from a custom field to send the alert.

For example, the value in the custom “Number of days” field is 1. Select the “After X number of days specified in field”. Then choose the custom list field with a number. In this example, we have value “1” in this custom field. This means, you will receive this alert on the next day after the date in the “Due date” field.
