Hello Jahnavi - 

This request has come up multiple times from Gainsight Admins, and it's also being discussed on an internal thread at the moment.

Wanted to let you know it's on the 'under consideration' list by product, and the Professional Services group here at Gainsight is voting it up too, so hopefully we'll hear back soon on plans to add the functionality!

Hi Jahnavi and Scott,

We will definitely keep this as an item to be added sooner. We will discuss internally and see the possibilities of adding it.

Until this is possible in rules, you could add a formula field to the customer info object in Salesforce that reads TODAY(). This has helped me out quite a bit in calculating DateDiffs in different rules.
