IF/THEN with TODAY in date column


Hello -

I am trying to create a formula for a date column where IF another column which is a drop-down is a certain criteria THEN the date in the date column is TODAY + whatever the requirement.

I'm having some issues with this.

    Thank you @Andrée Starå

    Here is an image of two columns of my IT Ticket Tracker. I would like to create a formula in the Due Date column based on the dropdown selection in the priority level column.

    Routine: Within 5 days

    Urgent : Within 2 days

    Critical: Under 24 hours

    The timeline would be based on the requested by date column.

    Thank you for your assistance!
