A feature that tells you Happy Birthday

How can I do a feature that says Happy Birthday to you?

Create a template that says Happy birthday to {X} and replace {X} by the user’s name.

Have a text component that only shows when user’s birthday is today.

Is there a way? It’s attractive. Could you please inform me more?

As @ThinhDinh said, you’ll need a Template Column, and you should also look at Component Visibility.

Read up on those, and have a try at doing it yourself. If you get stuck, come back and show what you have and how far you got, and we’ll help with the next steps.

Don’t think this will work

When I have attempted in the past it hasn’t worked because their birthday is the year they were born

So if you were to make a visibility TODAY it wouldn’t as the year wouldn’t be 2021

Please let me know if you find a way, thanks

You’ll need to use math column that converts the birthdate to a number. I use this formula:

month(birthdate)*100+day(birthdate)

Do the same in a new math column for today:

month(now)*100+day(now)

Then compare the two columns. If equal, then it’s their birthday!

Thanks for the good source. I don’t know how to apply it.

  • Step 1: Math column

  • Step 2: Math column

  • Step 3: if-then-else column

  • Step 4: Template column

  • Step 5: Hint component using if-then-else column to drive visibility
