This is my Custom Function and I want to edit it

Discuss:

There is no need to use $variables and there is a possible conflict with script variables. The function works just as well by removing all the "$" characters.

Like this:
Let ([
d = theDate;
m = Month(d);
y = Year(d)
];

Case(
m > 9 ; Date (10;1;y);
m > 6 ; Date (7;1;y);
m > 3 ; Date (4;1;y);
Date(1;1;y)
)
)

Try =

Date ( 3 * Div ( Month ( date ) - 1 ; 3 ) + 1 ; 1 ; Year ( date ) )
