    Asked by kingfisherweddings on February 06, 2016 at 07:46 AM

    How do i input a second date that is 90 days earlier than the first?

    In the screen shot attached I am needing the expected pay date to be 90 days earlier than the date inputted in the date of wedding field.

    We can do that by using conditional logic with Insert rules - to insert a date that is 90 days before one date into another date field.

    What I have done on my demo, is I have first added another date field named "Expected Date of payment":

    Then, I have set up a condition to insert value of "Date of the wedding" field minus 90 into this new field:

    The result is this, where the second date field is automatically filled when a date is set in the first field:

    Please let us know if this works to satisfaction, or if you hit any snags while setting it up, and we will be happy to help.
