Able to send 4-6 weeks before birthday

0 Votes

We love the new feature for sending automated emails on our contact's birthdays. However, as a family entertainment center that offers birthday party packages, we would like to be able to send these emails 4-6 weeks before the contacts' birthday rather than just 14 days before. (Our contacts are usually the moms and we would enter the child's bday as theirs). That way we can promote our birthday party packages for them to schedule for this year's celebration. I know a lot of companies would benefit from this feature's date options being extended. Thank you.

Thanks for posting this feedback! You can currently schedule the birthday email to send 14 days ahead of time but I can understand the need to send further ahead of time.

We are trying to send birthday wishes of specific people to the whole office. Since the campaign is only able to be scheduled on or before the contacts birthday it is sending only the birthday person EVERYONE in the offices birthday greetings...and no one in the office is getting the birthday persons greeting. Easy solution is to be able to schedule on a date rather than the "contacts birthday" Thanks!

Hi @BrookeF637

Thanks for posting. Can you clairfy-- is the entire company saved in the account as one contact? If so, it would make more sense to have each contact within the company saved individually so you have control over each birthday.
