Creatio automatically calculates contact age based on the value in the Birthdate field for customer database segmentation. If the Birthdate field is empty on the contact page, the value in the Age field will be “0.” Please take this into account when setting up filters that use this field.
Creatio updates the value in the Age column in the following instances:
Whenever a new contact record is saved or the value in the Birthdate field is updated. In this case, the value in the Age field is updated only for the current contact.
On running the Update the values in the “Age” column action in the Contacts section. In this case, the age will update all contacts.
Daily, at a specific time. The age is calculated only for those contacts whose birthday is on the current day.
Set up age calculation
The following age calculation settings are available:
set up a time for daily updating of contact ages
disable daily update of contact age
disable any automatic updates of contact age.
Use the system settings in the “Contact age” folder.
To set up regular automatic updates of contact age, go to the Contacts section and run Actions > Schedule daily update of the “Age” column. If you change the time using the action in the Contacts section, the modifications will apply during the next age update.
To disable daily updating of the Age column, clear the checkbox in the “Enable automatic daily update of the contact ages” (the “RunAgeActualizationDaily” code) system setting. After this, the age calculation function will be performed only on saving contact records.
To disable age calculation completely, clear the checkbox in the “Enable updating contact ages” (the “ActualizeAge” code) system setting. This disables the age calculation functionality, regardless of the values of other system settings in the “Contact age” folder. If the age calculation functionality is disabled, the Age field on the contact page becomes editable.
