    Yes. Please refer also to our user guide: Mastering Date and Time Calculation

    Can you also tell us which of your form you need to do date calculation.

    It will help us provide you with the appropriate suggestion and workaround if you tell us which form, and elaborate further on what you need.

    Thank you for providing us the form name. But you did not elaborate further what date calculation you need.

    From what I see on your form, I can only assume that you want to populate the other Course Launch Date base on the dates of the 2 date fields (First Course date and Initial Email date)

    Please provide also more details on what date calculation is needed.

    Thank you for clarification. So it is 3 weeks before (21 days)...

    From what I checked you can use the condition calculation feature.
