Date on opportunity site that should show on Contract

So I have a Contract start date on my opportunity site that I want to be shown on the contract site. 


I tried to make a cross reference
By addinge this

Opportunity.Contract_start_date

and tried this 

Opportunity__r.Contract_start_date

and 

Opportunity.Contract_start_date__c

and 

Opportunity__r.Contract_start_date__c

Nothing works and its says syntax error

What to do? 

and ofcourse its field and relationships and advanced fomrula.

Hi,
create a process builder to update contact field.
You cannot do this using formula field as formula field displays data of parent object record on child object record not vice versa. Here you have to show data values on parent object from child object.So you have to create process builder for this.

And does it matter that it is not contact but contract field?

Sorry, I mean contract. Its a typo mistake.

So I tried to use the process builder. All I want to do is when a field is changed on the opportunity page EG. Contract start date (wich is a date field) then is should get mirrored to the contract page.

How do I do that? 

Because we dont want our employees to type the same twice.

Here you can use field reference(highlighted) and select the value of opportunity's field in value.
