Calculate the number of days between dates

  • Updated

Here's a handy webhook where you can calculate the number of days between dates. You just need to add a new Webhook and install it into the node where you want the calculation to take place. Here's how to set it up:

Step 1: Add the Webhook to your Organization

  1. Go to Apps & Integrations.
  2. Click on Add Webhook.
  3. Give the Webhook a name (like "Number of days"), and enter this for the webhook URL:


The end result looks like this: 


Step 2: Call the webhook from your tree

Somewhere in your tree, you likely have 2 data entry fields that are collecting the first and second dates. Make a note of those date variable names. For example:


Open your tree, and edit the node where you want the date difference to be calculated.

  1. Under the Apps / Webhooks section, click Add App.
  2. Pick the Webhook you added previously ("Date Difference", for example).
  3. In the Message Data area, enter something like this:
    Replace #date1# and #date2# with your own variable names for the first and second dates

  4. Save the changes to the node.

Your edits should look something like this:


Now just use #‌diff# anywhere you want to show the date difference. Example:
