  • How to calculate days count between two dates

    Hi,

    I want to calculate and show the date count between tow dates in opportunities.

    Ex-
    Opportunity Life type is int

    Opportunity Life = Current date - Created date


    I have tried different thing, but nothing happen.

    How and where are you doing this?

    I have a field called "age" defined in the custom clientDefs.json for a Case where I calculate the number of seconds between the current date (NOW) and the "modified_at" field:

    "age": {
    "type": "float",
    "readOnly": "true",
    "notStorable": "true",
    "view": "custom:views/fields/age-since",
    "select": "TIME_TO_SEC(TIMEDIFF(NOW(), case.modified_at))"
    }

    I'm using a custom view here to convert the seconds to hours or days (depending on number of seconds) as well as using differing markup.

      Hi,
      you can use this formula
      Code:
      oppAge = datetime\diff(datetime\now(), createdAt, 'days')

        Hi Maximus,

        your is formula working perfectly. Thank you. But one thing, i need to update this "oppAge" entity automatically each and every day. Is it possible.

        Eg -for today oppAge is 50, for tomorrow it should show as 51.

          You can't achieve such dynamic changes with formula. You can do this with a scheduled workflow.

            ... or like the example I provided, it updates dynamically.
