Get next Date(weekday)




I am creating a follow-up functionality in my Application and what I want is to get the next day of the date when the form is sent/saved but when the output/result of the date is in the weekend, I want the result of the next day field to be set in the up-coming Monday instead. 

Thanks for the help :D

Hi @FinTheHuman,

You can add new Virtual field and use "Calculated value" in the form element then paste this formula to get the next day excluding the weekend:


WHEN ((DatePart(dw, GetUTCDate())) = 6)
THEN (DateAdd(day, 3, GetUTCDate()))

WHEN ((DatePart(dw, GetUTCDate())) = 7)
THEN (DateAdd(day, 2, GetUTCDate()))

ELSE (DateAdd(day, 1, GetUTCDate()))


I hope this helps :)

Hi @FinTheHuman,

If you want the result to be editable then you will need a custom script to do that, follow this process for the step:

(1) Use a Virtual field to do the calculations of the formula provided earlier and insert a DATETIME field(to store the output of the formula)

(2) then make the Virtual field hidden :


(3) Insert a Header & Footer -> and paste this code in the Footer part:

<script type="text/javascript">
document.addEventListener('DataPageReady', function (event) {

  var src = document.querySelector('[name*=cbParamVirtual1]');
  var dest = document.querySelector('[name*=InsertRecordDATE]');

  src.onchange = function() {
  dest.value = this.value.substring(0,9);

Important Note:

- Make sure that you unchecked the "Enable HTML editor" in the advance option of the Footer.

- Use the correct name value of your actual field in the script.

- The "var src" is the SOURCE of the value(where the formula is located).

- The "var dest" is the DESTINATION of the formula output (the editable Date field itself).

- This process is working on my end. Feel free to test it out here: https://c1abv183.caspio.com/dp/482760009312d3d82a8949d4987e


I hope this helps :)
