Top menu >> Setup

Using the new duration field you can calculate a date using the duration field in combination with a date field. An example would be to have the term of a contract as a duration field and in combination with the signature date field you can calculate the renewal date. 

In the template of the process navigate to the Fields tab. Drag and drop the Duration field into place. 

Next steps:

  1. Name the field
  2. Select Eligible units

If you already have a signature date field in your process you can use that. If you do not you can add a Date field you would like to use in combination with the duration field. 

Next is to add a Formula field. 

  1. Add the formula, this example:  Term + Sign date
  2. Select the format: Duration
  3. Select Eligible Units: months

The Date format type will convert the formula you've created into a date.
