  • Hi, You would add branches to your workflow/dialog logic depending on the answer to update your date field with x months after process execution time. note: there is no 'years' operator, the most you can increment by is 24 months. So for a '5 years' answer, you would need 3 update steps; Set date field value to process execution time +24 months Increment date field value by 24 months Increment date field value by 12 months 100 years would need 50 update steps!
