• Calculated dates - Adding days to a date field

# Calculated dates - Adding days to a date field

Community Beginner ,

Copied

I have created a mandatory field for the first signer to enter a date (isdate = MM/DD/YY).

{{  *date1_es_:signer1:isdate }}

I would like to add three days to the date the first signer enters - a calculated date that is not editable and a read only field.

I understand that I may need to use the dateAdd function

Adds the specified number of parts (e.g. "d" for day, "m" for month, or "y" for year) to a date to calculate a future date. You may use numbers or field names.

For example: dateAdd("m", "Jan 1, 2000", 3) would return a date of Apr 1, 2000. In this example, the formula adds 3 months to the date specified.

Can anyone suggest a solution for the required field?

I have mind block!

Thank you kindly

Hugh

Hello Hugh,

If you are looking to add 3 days to the current date/date on which signer opens the document, then you can use the now() and add three days into it:

now()+3 would be the formula to be used.

Let me know if you have any questions.

Regards,

-Rijul

Thank you Rijul.

Yes, your solution works well for those who need to add 3 days from the day the signer opens the document.

In my case, I need to add three days to a specified date.

eg. I am a home inspector that performs a service on a specified date. I have a contractual obligation to provide a written report 3 days after the on-site inspection (the specified date).

I have the first signer enter the specified date of the inspection - {{  *date1_es_:signer1:isdate }}

I would like to add 3 days to that.

Can you suggest a field that could do so?

Have you tried:

{{*date1_es_:signer1:isdate}}

{{date2_es_:calc(date1 + 3)}}

Nothing is working for me. I want to add 2 years from the sign date.  I tried now ()+730 (some monstrous number populated). I tried the expression bulider. I tried, using teir example dateAdd(d, signedDate, 3) but it says signedDate not found. (interchaged DateAdd with fileds and then did "y" and the number "2". Still nothing. Should this be EXTREMELY easy? I shouldn't have to look up/post a/to discussion board. The Article "Add caluated fields to forms" notes 2x a situation that should work for my use case, and neither does.
