Backend workflow which best way?

Hi,

I am a little lost with the different possibilities and of using the backend workflow.

I just finished building my app. And I would like to create an automatic workflow that starts every day at 9 p.m. and sends an automatic message to the different users (while respecting certain filters) what do you advise me to do?

Once finished, I would like not to touch it anymore.

Thank you

This is how I was trained to do it:

  1. Create the workflow to send the notification.

  1. Create another workflow that is going to loop back on itself. For the first step, select schedule a workflow on a list and choose your workflow created in step 1. The list to run on will be your list of users that you want to send the notification.

  1. Next step, select schedule a workflow and run the workflow #2 at 9pm. In my example, I run it every hour but you could probably put +1 day rounded down to day plus 21 hours or something like that.

Hope that helps.
