Hey PPM Community,

 

I'm trying to create a process the will kick off a day before the Target resolution date. I've tried to use dataMacro in an expression, but it returns a string and not a date.

 

issue.thisIssue.target_resolve_date > (date("today"))  provides a date once evaluated

 

w/dateMacro

issue.thisIssue.target_resolve_date > (dateMacro("prevDay")) provides the string 'prevDay' once evaluated

 

Looking for some help to understand why dataMacro isn't providing a date. Is there an alternative to kick a process a day before a date.
