Use a variable to store data for use in later actions. In this example, we create a variable called DueDate and calculate the DueDate for a task as Today + 3 Days.
- [Instructor] The add time to date function allows you…to add months, days, hours, minutes,…any part of time that you want to define,…and store a calculated date value,…in what's called a variable.…The value that's stored in the variable…can then be used later in the workflow to assign a due date.…Right now, the default value for the due date…is literally right now.…As soon as the item is created, it's already overdue.…
Now, there may be some managers out there who…don't want me to change that, but I'm going to show you…how to do it anyway, we're going to give…our folks three days from the time…that this vacation request is created,…before we tell them that it's overdue.…So, just get the add time to date…and we are going to put that right…above that update list item,…and double click on it and let's…configure that for three days.…
Use date when action is executed.…And now, this is where the variable is going to be stored.…So we need to say that we want to add a new variable,…create a new variable, and we're going to call it due date.…
