    To do that, we need to use a bit of help from conditions.

    To show how to do this, I have created a quick demo form, which you can see here: https://form.jotform.com/61116428956965

    The first field will get set automatically to current day, but the second one will get updated through conditions:

    Basically the condition is there to capture the value from the first date field and then just add 1 to it and pass it over to the other one.

    You can clone the form above to your account by following the steps here: How to Clone an Existing Form from a URL and please do let us know if you have any questions or issues setting up the same.
