Date of Birth and Age

We use several target groups for different ages (for example 18-25, 30plus, 50plus) therefore we require a solid way how to categorize the age of a contact. Furthermore, this would allow to send Birthday-Mails or to set task for a call.

 

Date of Birth

We have difficulties in using a data field in a form as the calendar for selection starts today. That means a lot of scrolling for the client.

Solution:
a Hubspot-Standard Date of Birth Data Field that consists of 3 elements: day, month, year. Ideally, elements can be hidden in a Form (to display only the birth year for example)

 

Age

A calculated field that displays the age of a contact in years (based on the birthday). Agerange should be selected for Contact Lists or Workflows. So we may target all contacts in the age of 18-25.

 

I am looking forward to hear from this update

HI MichiEck

 

Just seeing if you have found a solution for your problem? We are having s similar issue as we are trying to searh for all members (4,000 of them) who had a birthday in a particular month so we can send them birthday cards, but it does not allow us to search who had a birthday in the month of March for example.

 

It seems to only search for the actual date they were born, which would be a massive task if we had to do that for every month.

This would be great, we constantly have contacts just setting their year as the current year

We finsihed the new version in the weekend – it's ready to deploy.

 

Any chance we could have a chat ?

 

I'm assuming you're in NZ, or have you flown overseas?

 

Keen to learn more about how you use the Age and or Birthday.

 

Feel free to send me a message with your calendar link.

 

Cheers

Mike

Yep, we've seen similar issues and it would be great if we had more control in HubSpot of organizing ages based on birthday. Our only solution is that we typically create a custom property with a date picker and then use another custom calculation property to add days from the date to generate an age number. Then we can filter pretty decently, but it's a fair amount of leg work for something that should be more simple.

 

Similarly, we actually created a module that acts as a verification gate for any HubSpot Website or Landing Page. We use a custom cookie that you can control to block the page until the opt-in and verify they're over 21. Have a look if this sounds like something that might be useful to you: https://marketplace.hubspot.com/products/begin-bound/age-verification-gate

 

Happy HubSpotting!
