Birthdate selector


#1

I need to capture the birthday date (not date of birth) to then forward this information to mailchimp and program a automated email for their birthday. With the date picker, I’m able to capture the date of birth, but I _m not able to program the automation properly in mailchimp, since it works only with MM/DD format. Has anyone solved this problem?

Hi Oscar,

One suggestion, I’ve not tried it, but it should work. Add a hidden field to your form with the name birthday, let them fill in the form as normal with the date picker on your Date of Birth field but fire a small piece of Javascript that will then fill in the hidden field with just the dd/mm.

You can then pass mail chimp the hidden field that’s already formatted the way they need it and your good to go.

Hope that helps and gives you a starting point.

Cheers

Stuart.
