I want to enable a customer to collect birthday data so we can send out birthday offers using an auto responder.
The only thing is we only want them to complete day and month because we figure a lot of their clients would not feel comfortable entering year of birth.
I just did a trial sign up form and deleted the year field from the HTML code. The sign up worked but the birthday data did not come across, only the name and email address.
We could put a little message next to the sign up form saying "Don't want to disclose year of birth? Just enter current year" but that's really clumsy.
Q: Is there a way to only collect day and month?
The date field does require the full date for it be valid. That is, Day Month and also the Year.
Hope that makes sense and helps.
Everyone's birthyear will be 1901, but they don't have to know, and your anniversary autoresponders will work beautifully :)
Many thanks Phil. Tested and working!
