Variable deadline in a time-triggered Workflow

I saw the question about a trigger a Workflow in a specific date/time, and I saw your answer. "Put a WAIT step as the first item, and set the deadline" but what happens if I need a variable deadline? I mean, the deadline in "Start tab" is a constant, but is it possible to change the deadline at run time?

Yes it is. You should select the deadline monitoring to be based on an Expression. You could then calculate that expression at runtime in order to calculate your variable deadline.
