Combining If/then with date population

Answered - Pending Review

I am trying to figure out a way to auto-populate a date, but only IF a specific condition is met. (Screenshot below)

I used the formula =WORKDAY([1st Test Date] 1,6) to auto-populate the "Second Test Scheduling Date", but I would like this to only auto-populate if the column "1st Test Results" is "Positive".

Any tips? I'm definitely running up against a wall on this one!

    Hi @Megan T,

    you need to combine WORKDAY with IF

    Logic is: IF the cell "1st Test Results" has the value "Positive", then use the WORKDAY formula, IF not, leave blank.

    =IF([1st Test Results]@row = "Positive", WORKDAY([1st Test Date] 1,6), "")

    Hope this helps
