Hello @Anonymous 

For example, to add 2 days to the start time field, you could use an expression like:

addDays(body('USB_Drive_()')?['Start_Date'];2)

 

Hope it helps.

Thanks, I don't think that's quite what I need. The field that will have the calculated date is the Due Date" and the date it shows needs to be "Startdate" field from the form + 5 days (for example).

 

e.g. the form Start Date is Feb 20th. So Due Date field should be Feb 20th+5 days = 25th (but the Start Date is not manually entered it comes from the Form Field).  

So, if I understand, you need the start date field from the form response, isn't it? Therefore the expression should be:

addDays(body('get_response_details)?['StartDate'];5)

Hope it helps.

Hello @Anonymous 

You should use formatDateTime function to convert date value to string, as it is expected to create the task in Planner. Have a look at this sample (visit_date is a date field in the form):

Hi @Anonymous 

I don't understand your question... Anyway, you could place the formula inside the "Due Date" field in planner task.
