Apptivo provides you with the Function Attribute, where you can create your own function needed for your business in all apps. We have added a new feature of finding the difference between two date fields when using the “Date Formula” attribute while creating a function.

For instance: Consider Opportunities App where you would like to know the allotted duration of opportunities. In that case, you can create date formula to find the difference between Close Date and Created On date.
