    Is it possible to pass a date to a matrix field by calculation?

    Asked by ZacharyRichards on January 27, 2017 at 07:40 AM

    I wanted to know if it were possible to create a calculation in the actual matrix.

    For example, a cell in the matrix equals a date that someone put in above the matrix.

    Is this possible
