  • You can set the condition based on the Today function. It will work based on the task creation date as the “Today”. For example, if you want to set the 'Due Date' to be set 5 days after the date of creation, you can set the function as Today + 5.
  • Here, the condition is set as the Today + 5.
  • You can also set the function based on the other date attribute by using the Insert Attributes.
  • Click on the Create button to update the function.
  • Then, click on the save button to update the changes.
  • Once the task is created, you can view the Next Due Date attribute will auto updated as the Task Creation + 5 days.
