Using CiviCRM 4.6.11, Drupal 7. We want to create a workflow for membership renewals, part of which will include automatic, scheduled e-mails to members with expiring or just-expired memberships. I can create a Smart Group based on membership expiration date, then create a (say) daily,weekly scheduled job to send an e-mail to Smart Group members.
Is this the best or only way?
I'm also checking out the CiviRules extension compatability with 4.6.11 and 4.7 then checking out using CiviRules to create such a workflow.
