    Hi Aleksandra,

    I have heard this several times since we released workflows, and I agree there could be some additional options there. What types of date options would you like to have? Our developers take user input seriously, so it would be great to hear about your use-case. :)

    Hi Joseph,

    It would also be great if we can define a date that is N days before a date given in the app.

    For instance I would like to create a task with a due date 30 days before a "Deadline" date in the app, and another task with a due date 15 days before the same "Deadline" date.

    Thank you :-)

    Hey guys,

    Good news! You now have many more options on the date you set in a workflow. If you click on the date field when creating a new (or editing an existing) you can for example type in 90 days after 'Current time' or another date field in the app. Check it out!

    I hope this will come into good use :-)

    Hi Joseph,

    Thank you for your reply.
    I would like to be able to set any date in the past or future.
    Could be exactly the same as it is with setting tasks... you can chose today, tomorrow, next week or custom date (after clicking on it a little calendar shows up and you can chose any date you want).

    Many thanks

    Thanks for the details, I'll save that for our developers to consider.

    Hi
    Were you able to look into this? David's idea of being able to define a date that is x day before or after a date given in the app is great.

    I completely agree. It feels rather limited to only set a due date on a predetermined time. Even 48 hours would be nice.

    One vote for this. The available options for tasks due dates are really limited, I love Joseph idea about N days after or before a date in a given field.

    Is there any way to have the due date be X number of days after assigned date? I have my work flows starting when applications come in, and would like to make it so my people have 7 days after the application is received to respond to the applicant.

    Bump to this. I want to make a date on an item 10 months in the future.
