Scripted Date Field to calculate according to the dropdown list

Hi Guys,


Need your help in order to calculate to Date according to the dropdown list and date field. 

If A ( dropdown list) = XYZ and Target Date = 10/12/2020, then Scripted date field would be 1st of the month like 01/12/2020.


If A (dropdown list) = LMN and Target Date = 15/12/2020 then Scripted Date field would be -20 of Target Date , like 25/11/2020

It'll be easiest to do this with a scripted field, not an escalation service.

A scripted field can be set up as a date/time field, so your code will simply have to read the two fields, do some simple calculations to work out the new date and return the date/time as the output.

There are a load of example scripts for looking up fields and working with dates over at

Hi @Nic Brough _Adaptavist_  Thanks for the help.
