    Hi,

    I posted this in the forums but for some reason my question isn't showing up there, so I'm not sure what is happening. 

    I have been reading this thread and it's close to what I'm wanting to achieve, however my needs are slightly different.
    We will be using Jotform as an order form, and I am wanting the form to display some text that will display the estimated completion date window. This is typically 3-5 business days (excluding weekends) from the date that the order is placed. The form above does something similar, however it calculates the date as a field in the form, and not text information on the page.

    I have attached a quick screenshot of what I'm hoping to achieve in the hopes it might help. As you can see, it's just text on the order form itself, rather than a date selector field like the one in the aforementioned thread.

    It seems as though something like this could be the answer, except that instead of todays date I need it to calculate 3 business days (ideally a 3-5 day window) from the current date, just like the attached screenshot. Any ideas?
