Re: Format fields question

Hello,

It can be done but have in mind that custom numbers (prior to unlimited custom fields of SP18) are rounded to the the second digit.

In your UI rules do the following trick

Set Planned Duration to the value of your custom duration. But before pressing "Add To List" delete "Planned Duration" and *TYPE* the name of your custom field in the text box below "Fields" Button. Press add to list and voila!

Hello,

For starters what is the version of SD ? Because this doesn't work on SD 5.x

Second, do you have experience in creating ui rules?

Re: Format fields question

I'll try to explane, what exactly i need.
I create Custom field (format duration), and made UI rule to put data inside:
"(SUBTRACT DATE FROM [Waiting] With [Work])" - it works fine.
Now, i create custom one more custom field (format number).
Now, i need to take data from first custom field to second. But when i try to create UI rule to this i cannot set value of duration field to number field.
