How can I use a smartvalue to calculate the date in a custom field + 6 business days? Edited

Hello everyone,

I am trying to create an automation rule where it calculates the date from a custom field plus 6 business day.

I have looked at the documentation and found this smartvalue but I don't know how to take the source date from a custom field rather than "now":


Would it be {{(issue.customField_xxxxx.value).plusBusinessDays(6)}}?

Thanks for the help everyone! :)
