I have a custom field named estimated project end date on my CRM 2011 opportunity form. I need to create a workflow that will send a reminder e-mail to the owner of the opportunity 30 days prior to the project close date.

What is the best way to do it without resorting to programming and just the out-of-the-box customization tools that come with CRM 2011 Online?

Hello Chad,

I recommend you to use workflow with wait clause. As a wait to you can use calculated date - Close date - 30 days.
