Is it possible for a Reminder to initiate execution of a smart rule, with the ability of that smart rule to perform actions on the underlying document attached to the reminder?
Actually the trigger On Reminder should be sufficient.
I was pondering that. but it seems to me that the “On Reminder” works best if I want the smart rule to apply to a set of documents meeting search criteria. If I wanted the reminder about one specific document, then using “On Reminder” I would need to create some sort of unique search criteria - and if that criteria involved the document name, then if I edited the document name the trigger would no longer work.
Or am I missing something?
This depends on the number of reminders and the number of both items & reminders the smart rule would process. See e.g. the generic “Reminders” default smart rule.
