CauseThe above logic will not work. A notification that is evaluating "Current Day" is reviewing the record content at the time of evaluation. If the date field does not contain the "current date" (today), it will not pass evaluation and the notification will not fire.
ResolutionRemove the "Future Date" configuration from the Date Field and re-test. Assuming all other criteria is met, notification will fire.
Consider using Reminder Notifications.
