It can be helpful to have a Due Date as a regular field in SAM, instead of just a Due Date on a Checklist Item. This allows you to use the Due Date field in Auto-Actions and circumvents the restriction of non-full-admin users changing the due date on Checklist Items.
In order to utilize the Due Date field on the Checklist as a Due Date, you must link the Completed and Due Date Fields together. The Form Customizer Module is needed for this.
- Open the Field Properties for the Due Date Field.
- Click the Link as Due Date Field
- Select the Completed Date Field
Now, whenever you enter the Due Date on the Checklist Item for the linked field, it will enter it into the actual Due Date Field, and vice-versa."
