Show my "next deliverable date" based on the child-parent task relationship?


Hi! I've been using the MIN and MAX children functions to roll up dates from child tasks, or sub-tasks, to the parent task.

I also want to create a column that looks at the dates of each sub-tasks and grabs the one closest to today's date that has been marked as a deliverable so I know the "next upcoming due date" among a parent's children/sub-tasks. What would be the best way to write that formula?

I'm starting with =MIN(COLLECT(CHILDREN(), CHILDREN(), @cell >= TODAY())) but I'm not sure how to incorporate the [Deliverable]=1

If it's helpful, here's an example what I am trying to get is the Parent date cell to populate the the 3/22/23 date
