Post Function query

I have a custom date field in my project. I want to use a post function that after a ticket is created and user clicks on Assign task the due date field should automatically get filled by current date+ 7 days .

I tried to use a post funtion "update custom field"  however it ask to use some macros for setting date/time that i'm not sure how to use. Could any one please advice?

You can't use logic in there to calculate current date + 7. You can get current date using %%CURRENT_DATETIME%%. That's all.

For your logic, you need to write a custom post function or check if any of the plugins already provide that functionality.
