Selections Tutorial: Making a birthday selection
A birthday selection will, on a daily basis, select contacts that have their birthday today. Take the following steps to create one such selections:
- Create a new selection and choose the condition type ‘Check on date’.
- Select the field in which you have stored the dates of birth.
- When picking a date click "variable date" and set it to after 0 days ago and before 0 days ago. Round both dates to days. The year should not be identical, because otherwise you'd only select profiles born on that day, in that year, and those probably don't exist in your database (and it also doesn't serve the purpose of the selection).
- Save it, and plan a daily mailing to this selection to congratulate your customers on their birthday!
