###Instructions The key is this "Set Variable" date formula: `%ICUDateTimePlus%DAT__Days%Days%EEE, MMM d, yyyy h:mm%` which ADDS time to the current date. You can easily get this from the "Insert Token" popup: <img src="/uploads/default/original/2X/2/2ed909f0afb98bb2524e5a3382e2f93155546041.png" width="690" height="273"> which will insert this into the text field of the Set Variable Action: `%ICUDateTimePlus%3*7%Days%EEE, MMM d, yyyy h:mm%` One trick is knowing how to use a KM Variable in this formula. Like any formula you just use the Variable Name, without the "%". So, replace "3*7" with "my_KM_Variable_name" `%ICUDateTimePlus%my_KM_Variable_name%Days%EEE, MMM d, yyyy h:mm%` Since the Variable I used in the below macro is named "DAT__Days", it results in: `%ICUDateTimePlus%DAT__Days%Days%EEE, MMM d, yyyy h:mm%`
