I have collected birthday’s in a date input. What I thought would be fairly straight forward to view birthday’s on a given day inside a Repeating Group has totally frustrated me. So, I have been broken and need to ask for some guidance or suggestions or knowledge on how to understand the collection of birthdays and then displaying them so staff can see if there is a birthday today, tomorrow etc.
Create a Date field on the “user” type or “employees” type, call it “birthday”, on the page have a RG Showing all users, have a date-picker input in the cell, “initial content” set to current cells users birthday, and have a “when this date-pickers value change” workflow, with an action to change current cells user, field to change “birthday” = date-pickers value
I don’t care. I just didn’t know if that was making it so that I couldn’t just get the date out of it.
If someone entered 5/28/1990 as their birthday I simply want to display their name today as having a birthday. No care about their age. Just that today is their birthday. And for some reason I am having a terrible time trying to get it to display. Seems like it should be straight forward to me and NOT this complicated.
Appreciate the link. Video was tough to see. Blurry on my end.
I asked users to submit their birthday. Year born actually doesn’t matter to me for use purposes.
I have a main page for users to display a few items, one of which is to show if anyone has a birthday today. For the life of me I can not figure out how to get this to display. I can get it to display if I change the data in the user field to today’s actual date and set hours, minutes and seconds to 0.
But if the DOB entered was 5/28/2000 it will not show.
So I am missing something, just can’t pinpoint it. I have tried all kinds of ways from setting constraints on the search to filter options to extracting the year and saying it was changed to current date/time year.
I appreciate all the help, but I am stuck and need to get this figured out before I throw my computer lol. (not really, but it feels like that)
