    You just need to use a custom default date that adds 7 days from the current date. Please check this demo form. Here's a guide on how to do it:

    1. Insert a "DateTime" field.

    2. Click the "Default Date" and then select "Custom".

    3. In the textbox, put 'today+7' and press the "OK" button. 
        today = current date
        +7 = add 7 days from the current date

    This instruction can be found if you hover your pointer in the blue "information" icon.

    Let us know if you have any questions. Thank you.
