Change Date Picker Default Date

Hi,

 

Is there a way to change the Date Picker Default Date?  What I would like to show as the default date is the current date plus 5 business days.  Is this possible?

 

Thank you for your help.

Here's a formula that will calculate todays date + 5 business days.

With({ startDate:Today(),
       daysToAdd: 5
      },
      DateAdd(startDate, daysToAdd) + 
      RoundDown(daysToAdd/5, 0)*2 +
      Switch(Weekday(startDate, StartOfWeek.Monday),
             5,If(Mod(daysToAdd, 5)>0,2,0),
             4,If(Mod(daysToAdd, 5)>1,2,0),
             3,If(Mod(daysToAdd, 5)>2,2,0),
             2,If(Mod(daysToAdd, 5)>3,2,0),
             1,If(Mod(daysToAdd, 5)>4,2,0)
      )
)

I have a post that describes how this formula works.

Also, you might consider voting for my idea here to include a built-in function to calculate business days.

@jkniffen ,

Set the default date property of the control to:

DateAdd(Today(),5,Days)

Thank you very much for your help.   🙂  Your formula works great but I need to only count business days and not weekends.  Is that possible?
