Steps to setup Request Form in Sharepoint

I'm somewhat new to infopath and sharepoint 2010 and my goal is to have a user request form created in Infopath, have that form template be available within Sharepoint for people to fill out, and then automatically create a task to fulfill that request.  Is that at all possible? If it can't automatically create a task, I'd like it to at least be put somewhere with notification that it has been created.  Thanks!

I guess you can do using calculated field. Try to use following formula: =[Created] + 3

If you want just to set default value for the column this can be done as well in field settings:
Hi! These are two different tasks:
1) Create and publish info path form:

2) Create a task once item is added in list.
There several ways to accomplish this - e.g. use event receiver or workflow. If you're not a developer then I guess the best way is to create a workflow, that will be started on item creation, using SharePoint designer.

Thanks.  I haven't found a clear way of automatically populating a due date.  I would like the due date to automatically be 3 days after the start date.  Do you know how to go about making that happen?
