Basically I have 5 tasks within my workflow:
Task 1 - Estimated Time 1 week
Task 2 - Estimated Time 1 week
Task 3 - Estimated Time 2 weeks
Task 4 - Estimated Time 2 weeks
Task 5 - Estimated Time 2 weeks
I want to set these time frames around the Tasks so that whenever the task is started it will automatically generate the due date from these time frames. Is this possible? I
It should be possible, simply do a date calculation inside of the workflow and store that into a variable. Then use the variable to set your Tasks due date.
Thanks for the quick response.
For the calculation do you suggest a 'math operation' action or a 'calculate date' action?
I think the Calculate Date would do just fine in this case, as it has a lot of the plumbing built into it to do just what you need.
