I am looking to create a workflow based on a "date" field; which is a field which we use as a 'follow up' date.  My goal is to have some form of automation which will notify the user once this follow up date is reached.  I have thought of using a workflow to create a task, or even send an email to the user whom adjusted the date, but the only options for setting up notifications for date related fields are to have a trigger for a specific time frame as opposed to using a specific date.  I am open to any and all suggestions to accomplish this goal.  Again, I am looking to accomplish the following:  when a user changes the follow up date field, I need an automated way to have this user notified on that specific day of the followup.  It could be a task, email, calendar entry, whichever is possible.  Thank you in advance to all of you who read and assist.  Much obliged.  I have seen some suggestions using logic hooks, yet these solutions are slightly above my head.
