    Automatically set a date considering the excluded days/dates?

    Asked by oppgraphics on March 04, 2016 at 03:40 PM

    My onboarding form has a due date field that is set to exclude weekends, past days, and a couple specific days; and the date selected automatically sets to 3 days from today.

    I would like the day that is automatically selected to consider the exclusion of weekends and those specific dates. Basically to add 2 BUSINESS days to todays date instead of just regular days...


    So for example: if I used the form today (Thursday, March 4th) the due date is being set automatically to Monday, March 7th. The problem is that that is technically only a 1 day difference because the weekend days (Saturday and Sunday) are not available. The due date should be Wednesday, March 9th.


    Can someone help please?

    Unfortunately, that is not supported, what you can do is to create conditions to update based on the day captured in another Date field's current date, example:
