    I am not sure if I fully understood your question, but you seem to be asking about setting a certain date in one field, based on what is entered or selected in another field.

    Yes, this is possible by using the conditional logic on your form, with update / calculate field rules.

    I see that you have already set up such rules on your form named CURSOS COMPLETOSvf, where entering a date in field Fecha / hora de Inicio automatically fills the date in field Días a reportar.

    Please let us know if you need further assistance, we will be happy to help.

    what I mean is that, if pressing the option: if marked in red circle, you can schedule the date appears when (date) is pressed that option. Since I have scheduled the option: if, if that option is pressed an email with the form data is sent, then the idea is to have a record of the date to which enevio the mail.

    If I understand correctly, you want to set a condition so that when the "Enviar a Csc" is equal to "Si", you want to show a date field? If so, then you can use the Show/Hide condition to show that date field.

    Here's a guide that can help: Smart Forms Using Conditional Logic

    You can setup the Show/Hide Field condition as seen below.

    Here's a cloned form so you can see it in action: https://form.jotform.com/60660335532955 

    If you are referring to another issue, perhaps you can post your concern with the language that you're more comfortable with so we can assist you better.
