How to use Date Functions in Clarity Process Post Conditions?

I'm still building my skills for creating processes in Clarity so please forgive me if this is an elementary question, but I hope someone can point me in the right direction.

I am trying to build a post condition for a process step that tests whether an event date matches today's date. For example, suppose I wanted to send a reminder to get time sheets in two days prior to the US Memorial Day weekend which begins on 5/27/2011. If "holiday_date" represents the deadline, then the condition / rule I want to build would be something like...

IF [holiday_date] - 2 = now(), then go to step [send_holiday_reminder]

In the step builder I've found date attributes from existing objects, but I haven't been able to find system functions. When I try to put them into expressions explicitly, (i.e., DATEDIFF([Now()], [holiday_date],"Day"), it fails.

Are date functions even available for building pre- or post-conditions in Clarity? If not, I'll figure out another approach, but I thought I would check here first.

Thanks!

Jeff
