I need to calculate a series of dates and display them to the user. Ultimatley in needs to look something like this ...
Meeting Date Sumbission Date Draft Submission Notice Goes Out
01-07-2013 12-01-2012 12-14-2012 12-05-2012
02-04-2013 01-24-2013 01-18-2013 01-09-2013
The dates are all interdependent, so Sumbission Date would be 2 Thursdays before Metting Date. Draft Sumbmission would be the Friday before the Submission Date. There is also logic for skipping holidays and such.
I am at a loss for where to start. Can someone in the community suggest what I should use? View, Computed Field? I am very new, and I am just looking for a jumping off point to start my research. I tried doing this in a view. I created a content type for Meeting Date and manually entered a date, then I created a PHP customfield to calculate Sumbission Date (ending in a print_r to display the value I calculated using PHP), then I got stuck. How can I access the calculated Submission Date in order to use it in calculating the Draft Sumbission Date?
