How to trigger update of calculated fields without changing attributes?

Franca Zober (1512) | asked Sep 19 '19, 9:19 a.m.

Hi there.

I have finally mastered calculated fields. Bascially I have an item with a due date. If the current date is past the due date, another field is set to "overdue" when any of the linked fields are altered. So far so good.

Now, I would like that field to turn "overdue" even if no attributes are changing, e.g. the item is not touched for a long time, obviously time is ticking and it becomes overdue.

Any idea how this can be achieved?

 No, you can't have calculated fields automatically calculate. The attribute customization is built into the workitem editing process. You should use asynchronous tasks for this and not attribute customization. See:
