    1. Click the Add button and select Add Calculated Field.
    2. Define Field Value = to the date you want removed. (In this example 31/12/9999)
    3. Set an If/Then/Else clause.
    4. In the If statement: Field Value  Is equal to Specified Date Field. (In this Example endDate)
    5. The Then statement can be left as it is.
    6. The Else statement: Field Value= Specified Date Field. (In this Example endDate).
    7. Your Calculation trace should look like the example below

**Note: Please add the date field to the integration to ensure that you set the correct date format for the field. Simply add the field, copy the date, then remove the field and create your calculated field.
