    How to calculates 28 days back from that date and auto populate a field?

    Asked by Tamara Francis on December 02, 2015 at 09:33 AM
    Also, they provide they provide the date of the closing balance. Can we insert a formula that calculates 28 days back from that date and auto populate a field? E.g. field 1: closing balance is 29th January 2016, the next field (field 2) should auto populate with the 1st January 2016.

    Hi Tamara

    Sharing with you the simple form based on your specifications.

    Demo form: https://form.jotform.me/53353756678469? 

    I created 2 calendars, 1 with the closing balance date and the other 1 blank (but set a condition to automatically subtract 29 days  based on the selected date from the closing balance date). 

    Hope this helps.

    - Randy
