Happy Holidays! So I have a SP13 list to where when a end user completes a task it clears out some of the data and resets for the next review. I have used a calculated date action to move the due date 30 days but sometimes this lands on a weekend. My problem is, that when this date does land on a weekend, I move it forward to the next business day (Monday). As you can imagine, this will change the due dates every time and eventually could lead to the due date being the following month. My workaround for this is that instead of advancing to the next business day, I will move the next due date to the previous business day (Friday). But...I wanted to see if there was a way for Nintex to know that it should be the 15th of the month, even if the prior month had to be moved to the prior business day because of the weekend/holiday. Hope this makes sense. Thanks!

this could be achieved eg. following way
- take your reference date (due date) and save it to a string variable in ISO format
- with regular expression action replace day to the 15th
- with calculate date action add up 1 month
this will give you 15th of next month from reference date.
I move it forward to the next business day (Monday)
I will move the next due date to the previous business day (Friday)
to change really to the next business day, I think you were already given few good hints from the community -
