Auto email when a date has passed

User liam.baker 2018-05-11 11:23:01


I have a list containing data for current service contracts in place. Is there a way to have an email sent to either myself or the customer letting them know the contract has ran out (date field has passed).

there is no such option at the extension itself. For an automatic process you would need to create a cron process at your server that would run everyday, check the database and send the emails. From the extension what you can build is a view of 'expired contracts' so you can easily locate those specific records. For this purpouse you would need to use 'view' option of listmanager backend, and create a new view based on your main list with the filter

date field -> LESS THAN-> NOW()

You can publish this view only for admin for ex.

Hope this helps, regards
