I would like to use a Flow to perform a record update and increase a custom date field on a record by 365 days. In a good old SFDC formula field, you can do this easily by using a simple date formula like "custom_date__c + 365" and the date value will increase by 365 days.
Is it possible to do this using an Assignment in a Flow by updating the date from the record which is stored in a Flow variable?
FYI: the Flow needs to update the record because it will trigger or re-evaluate certain Workflow rules that are part of the custom logic/process so a WF field update or formula really won't work within the process context.
- The Flow is invoked through a custom button on record detail page.
- The custom date field is passed into the Flow through the URL and stored in a Flow variable.
