SM TIP: Calculate the duration between two dates fields using a ruleset PD.



  • Load the unl attached which contains the JavaScript code (name: DateDifference / function: calculateDifference ) in charge of receiving 2 dates as parameters and return the difference in time between them
  • Go to Process Designer and create a new ruleset (as example I used planned.start and planned.end fileds from the cm3r table and I saved the calculation into datedifference2 field (datetime type)):
    1. Type: Run Javascript
    2. Condition: ( planned.end in CurrentRecord != 'NULL')
    3. Code: record.datedifference2=DateDifference.calculateDifference(record.planned_start,record.planned_end)
  • Add the ruleset created to the workflow(s) you want. In this example I added to the workflow properties instead of a specific phase but it’s all up to you.
  • You’ll get something like this as a result:
