Similar to the functionality in the delay.

    Hi Jocelyn,

    We were planning to have a workflow not do anything until a specific month of the year. For example, send an email if it is between September 1st and December 31st. For all other months, nothing will happen for all users that enter the workflow.

    Does this help give you an idea on how the Date Filter could help us?

    Hi Nick,

    Thanks so much for taking the time to submit your suggestion. The Date Filter node simply looks at whether today's date is before or after the date specified. I'm not sure how a recurring option would work, as it's a one-time comparison. The Delay node is ongoing for the life of the workflow, so ignoring the year is an understandable option; ie: send on August 1 only. Could you give me more information on how you would use a recurring option on the Date Filter? A rough outline of your use-case would be very useful in getting this request through our development process.

    Thanks again Nick, and don't hesitate to reach out if you needed anything else!
