Set Due depending on Created

Hi,

can anyone tell me how I can set “Due” depending on the “Created”-Date?

I know how to get the the Creationdate:
my $createdate = ($self->TicketObj->CreatedObj);

But how can I encrease it for example 14 days?

I did find something that takes the scrip execution time and adds 1 day.
$duedate->Set(Format=>‘unknown’, Value=>‘1 days’);
But that doesn’t work if I want to change it 3 days later, because than
I would have all in all 17 days.

I know that I can write the new date with:
$self->TicketObj->SetDue($duedate->ISO);

So all I need is the step inbetween.

Thanks,

Violetta

Violetta,

In the "Basics" screen of a Queue (Configuration->Queues->select Queue) 

you will see the “Requests should be due in” field. If set to a value
greater than 0, the due date will be automatically set. That should do
it. However, that means that ALL requests that come in will get that
calculated due date. If you get a request that is especially more
complex, you will want to modify that date manually. We have over 100
queues and some use the field and some don’t.

Look into RT::Date class - lib/RT/Date.pm there are several simple
methods to add time to the date.On Tue, Oct 21, 2008 at 6:29 PM, Violetta Wawryk v.wawryk@science-computing.de wrote:

Hi,

yes I am doing that already, but they add the days to the current date
and not the Created date. Does anyone actually know how I can tell the
perlthing to use the created date and not the current date. That would
be very helpful.

Thanks.
