I'm probably missing something obvious, but this is driving me crazy. I have a several workflow functions I need for one list.... starting with an email going to a reviewer when a new item is submitted... then basically there are about 5 date fields, and when a date is entered in the field, and email goes out. So, by default the date fields are all empty, and as the dates are entered, the requestor will get an email. I cannot for the life of me figure out how to add that functionality to a workflow. I'm kind of a newbie, I know how to send an email when a new item is submitted, and a few other basic steps, but having an email sent when a field is populated isn't something I've ever done. Hopefully I've explained what I'm trying to do well enough, I can't find anything searching the internet!
