Hello @FErnandaB9

To find your exported file, you can access the Activity page. When you're on the Contacts tab, you can find this page at the top of your screen.

Unfortunately, there is a known issue on our end that prevents exporting contacts' birthdays. Our engineers are working to resolve this as soon as possible. I apologize for the inconvenience. I can leave a case open for notification for you, once this is resolved. If you'd like that, please let me know.

If he creates a custom field in which to enter birthdates, and re-keys or uploads the data there, will that field appear as an option to select when he prepares an export?

Hello @mchristo

 

If the information is placed within a custom field, it will be available to export.  The birthday field can be used to create a Birthday or Anniversary campaign to be able to send out campaigns on a specific date for each contact.  If the birthday is solely within the custom field, this campaign type will not work properly.

Ok then. Please fix the standard-birthday-field-export problem asap.
