I am building out a new base for my department which runs a variety of Programs throughout the year. Thus far I have set up some dummy data (i.e the “steps” you see in the screenshot) to successfully link my tasks to projects. There is a flow to how we approach the different programs we offer in terms of our when open applications, when we contract instructors for a workshop and so on and so forth. I have it set up so that every time I create a new project - based on the project I select, the are a number of tasks that will be automatically generated. I am now hoping to make it so that when a “Program Start Date” is entered, the “Task Due Date” will auto populate a deadline for each task based on a formula that aligns with our overall event timelines. Based on some previous community posts and through general research I see that the SWITCH formula might be the right way to go. However, after trying to create and implement what I thought was a proper formula - there are no tasks deadlines generated in “Task Due Date” - Although my formula was seemingly correct (there is no ERROR / NaN or anything to indicate where the issue may lie). I pasted below the formula I am using below that is currently being unsuccessfully used in “Task Due Date.”
Please help! It would be amazing to autogenerate deadlines for each program type - it would save a lot time too.
I think the error might just be that you are providing a “string” for the number of days, rather than an “integer”. Instead of surrounding the number of days in quotes ('-30'), just provide the integer (-30).
