I have a task log that I created at work to prioritize my daily to-do's.

In one column I've added a formula to automatically calculate Covey's quadrant numbers based on whether or not I've assigned a task as urgent or not urgent and important or less important (which populates as `1`

, `2`

, `3`

or `4`

). I also have a column to assign a due date. I want to automatically assign a due date and I wrote a formula to do so, but the `TODAY`

function means that tomorrow, my due dates will change. Here is what I am looking to accomplish:

- I want the due date to calculate automatically based on the quadrant in column G and today's date.
- I want the due date to remain static when I open the workbook tomorrow.
- When I enter a new task tomorrow, I want the due date to automatically calculate again using the TODAY function and then again remain static the next day, as so on and so forth.

I have been researching this topic online furiously for some time now to no avail. I have found many recommendations to use CTRL+ to automatically enter today's date into a cell, and that is not what I am looking for.

Please review my formula below and let me know if there is any way to accomplish my goals, macro, vba, formula or otherwise. Please be very detailed in your directions as I am just learning about macro and vba.

```
=IF(ISBLANK(E4),"",IF([@QUADRANT]=1, TODAY()+1,IF([@QUADRANT]=2, TODAY()+7,IF([@QUADRANT]=3, TODAY()+3, IF([@QUADRANT]=4, TODAY()+30)))))
```

`d`

into your Due Date column. When this happens, run the function and replace the cell's value with the calculated date. Then any time you want a static, but correctly calculated due date, type "d" and it will be entered for you. – I say Reinstate Monica Jan 23 '18 at 1:41
