Formula in a calculated column

Hi,

 

I am creating a project plan based on sharepoint list. I have set up a deadline for each step, if the previous step is delayed for x days, i want the deadline of following steps to be extended by x days as well. I have wrote a formula in the column setting like this, but it doesn't work.

Re: Formula in a calculated column

Is this a problem with Flow or SharePoint? I would recommend posting this to A sHarePont forum instead. Unless of course you are trying to replace the sharepoint logic with Flow.

I agree with @Pieter_Veenstra .

That said, I believe that you need to include the DATEVALUE function in your expression:

=IF(ISBLANK(Date1),DATEVALUE("09/20/19"),Date1)
