NetSuite Admin Tip: Dynamic Date/Time Comparisons in Workflow Conditions using Custom Formula

edited Oct 3, 2022 9:44PM in NetSuite Admin Corner

The Condition Visual Builder in workflows only allows comparisons to a Static Date or Date/Time value as shown in the screenshot below.

There are use cases that would require comparison to a Dynamic Date or Date/Time value such as the Date Today, the Day a Month Ago, Last Week at 5:00 PM, and so on. In these scenarios, Custom Formula should be used.

Writing SuiteFlow Condition Custom Formulas would differ in whether a Server or Client Trigger is used and whether Date or Date/Time fields are involved. Approaches for each of these setups are detailed in the sections below.
