%DATEADD%(1,2,3)% Made up of three parameters

1 = The date property. This can be set to HR for Hour, DA for Day, MO for Month, YR for Year.
2 = The interval. This is a numerical value. Can be positive or negative.
3 = The format to show the calculated value in. For more information on setting date values see DateTime Formats

Using example %DATEADD(DA,1,dd-MM-yyyy)% we would be left with the value 06-12-2020 if ran on the 5th December.

Using example %DATEADD(MO,1,dd-MM-yyyy)% we would be left with the value 05-01-2021 if ran on the 5th December.
