# Looking for help with Formula

edited 01/22/24

Hello,

Trying to get a formula to work to get a corresponding response to know when information in a checklist I created needs to be sent. I have all the automations working but I know the formula itself is not what it should be. I had formulas but I confused myself and am not sure which is correct anymore. The last 2 I need to show after 5 days of the employee being employed I need to do a 5-day check-in and then a 30-day check-in.

2 Weeks after the offer date I need 2 Week's Deadline to appear,

=IF([Offer Date]@row - [Todays Date Formula]@row <= 10, "2 Week Deadline", " ")

=IF([Todays Date Formula]@row - [Offer Date]@row >= 5, "1 Week Deadline", " ")

=IF([Todays Date Formula]@row - [Offer Date]@row >= 2, "2 Day Deadline", " ")

=IF([Todays Date Formula]@row - [Offer Date]@row > 1, "Day 1 Deadline", " ")

=IF([Employee Start Date]@row + [Todays Date Formula]@row > 5, "2 Day Deadline", " ")

See if these are what you are looking for or maybe they can narrow in on your formula needs:

=IF(TODAY() - [Offer Date]@row >= 10, "2 Week Deadline", IF(TODAY() - [Offer Date]@row >= 5, "1 Week Deadline", IF(TODAY() - [Offer Date]@row >= 2, "2 Day Deadline", IF(TODAY() - [Offer Date]@row >= 1, "Day 1 Deadline"))))

=IF([Employe Start Date]@row > TODAY(5), "5 Day Check In")
