Create a group type “number” and use it to calculate and store the negative of your number. Then simply pull the group’s value back into your statement. That will solve it.
Thanks for your posts here.
I’ve run into the same issue again following your guide… I cannot input the ‘-1’ to multiply it by. Any ideas what I’m doing wrong? thanks
Ps. Visitors to my site/app input a number of days and an event date and I want to help them ‘work backwards’ and figure out what date they need to start each task in order for the big event.
Literally type -1 on your keyboard.
If that doesn’t work, put -1 in a custom state and do it that way.
I used a state variable and on page load assigned that state to the input value (has a default) and then multiplied that by negative one… then used that state value after the +days… then added an on input value changed set the state variable again with the new value * -1. But if you need in a backend workflow then use the plugin mentioned above.
Have this problem too. Typing -1 doesn’t work, I can’t multiply by anything at the end of my expression.
No solution yet?
