Calculate end time from start time and duration in confiforms

I'm looking for an way to calculate the end time of an event from a start time and a known duration.

The data should be preset, but still editable for the user.

What field type should I use - datetime or datime interval?

And how do I define an interval in minutes?


I defined fields 'plannedstarttime' and plannedendtime' of field type 'Datetime'

and a rule for field definition with

  • Condition '!plannedstarttime:[empty]'
  • Action 'Set value'
  • Values to set 'plannedendtime=[entry.plannedstarttime]+days(1)'

Expected results would be endtime =starttime plus 1 day, but the result looks like

Plus 90 min then would be  +5400000, but how do I get it calculated?
