Re: adding months to a date gives strange behaviour

Hi @garywalker,

 

I did a test on my side and I also met the situation you mentioned.

The span of adding a month here should be without considering that this month may have 30/31/28/29 days.

I did the another test, and when I alternate between the leap year and the peace year, there will be a day when I add 12 months.

So I suggest changing the Time unit to Day will be more precise.

Barry

Re: adding months to a date gives strange behaviour

Thanks for looking in to this for me.

Unfortunately, we really need it to be adding months as day/weeks would not meet our acceptance criteria. Where would be the best place to raise this as a bug?
