I'm trying to create a task through a workflow everytime a item is created in a custom list. The problem is when I'm trying to add a custom 'due date' that is not fixed or 'today'...

I tried to follow this question: Set the due date on a task at time of creation using SharePoint Designer?

But I'm not able to handle this since there is no 'calculated' radio button...

current scenario
