Reproducing the Issue

  1. Create/Edit any canvas report;
  2. Using the calculated column feature try to perform a date calculation in a field which has date records;
  3. Realize that there is no date functions available.


The selected field which is storing date records is not set as a date field.


In order to the date functions  be available in the calculated columns, the field used to be calculated should be set as a date field.

If the field not date field and it is string for example, the functions will not be available by expected behavior.
