By selecting a starting date, you can quickly add or subtract time from that point, or select another date to find how many days span in between.
Work out the time between dates or assume a new date from any starting point
The date duration calculator has many functions that can simplify date calculations. Using this calculator, you can conclude the time between dates and add or subtract years, months, weeks, or days from any starting point. This can be helpful as calendar calculations are more complicated than simple numerical addition or subtraction.
For instance, weeks are calculated in 7-day periods, while months can span from 28 to 31 days. To complicate things further, dates will fall on different weekdays each year according to the earth's solar and lunar cycles.
Using the date duration calculator
The date duration calculator is very straightforward to use and is designed to help simplify a variety of calendar calculations. These estimates can be useful for many work or business applications, or for anyone interested in tracking specific dates.
Event calculations: The calculator can be used to calculate how many days or weeks an event will last, or the exact day an event begins or ends.

This can be helpful for performers, competitors, and/or artists that have to meet an event deadline and stay on schedule.
Project or contract calculations: You can quickly calculate what the exact date will be after any period of time, which can be useful for estimating projects or when a contract should end. You can also do a reverse calculation to gather when a particular project or contract was initiated if you know the days, weeks, or months that have gone into it.
Age calculations: The calculator can also be used to compute a person’s current age, or their age at any past or upcoming date. This can be helpful for planning sports team rosters or making sure employees or students meet certain age requirements.
Weekday calculations: The system can also generate the exact weekday a date occurred, such as the day a person was born, the day they were hired, or the precise weekday a holiday or celebration may fall on by using the integrated calendars.
