  • By default, it returns the date.
  • You can calculate with a date (e.g., when you want to subtract or add a certain amount of days from a date) by turning it into its numerical equivalent. You can do this with QA{spreadsheetTime}.
  • You can return on a formula: QA{isWeekend} which returns 1 if true, 0 if false; and QA{differenceToToday} which returns the amount of days difference to today.
  • You can include this element in different functions as DAYS, YEAR, and TODAY.
  • You can combine different functions and nested IF’s to create different results according to dates or number of days after the day selected by the customer. i.e., Increment pricing on earlier dates (e.g., within 5 days) and later dates (e.g., after 15 days) lower price.
