Updating contact ages 

Use the settings below to manage the contact age calculation in Creatio. Read more: Updating contact ages.

Enable updating contact ages (ActualizeAge) – manages the functionality of automatic update of contact ages. Disabling this system setting will disable all functionality for automatic contact age calculation. The functionality includes: automatic updating of contact ages on saving a contact record, a regular scheduled update of contact ages on their birthdays, contact age update triggered by the Update the values in the ‘Age’ column action in the Contacts section.

Type: Boolean. Default value: “True”.

Enable automatic daily update of the contact ages (RunAgeActualizationDaily) – manages the daily operation of updating the contact ages. If you enable this system setting, Creatio will run a daily check for contacts who have their birthday today and update their age. If you disable this system setting, Creatio will still use the general age calculation functionality, but without the automatic daily updates.

Type: Boolean. Default value: “True”.

Time of automatic daily update of the contact ages (AutomaticAgeActualizationTime) – determines the time of performing the age updates for the contacts whose birthday falls on the current day. Users can set the value manually or by running the Schedule daily update of the “Age” column action in the Contacts section.

Note. For large contact databases, we recommend scheduling the daily update of contact ages on the non-business hours.

By default, the system setting value is set in the “UTC” format. However, if a user runs the Schedule daily update of the “Age” column action in the Contacts section and does not change the run time, the system setting value will be updated automatically – the time will be recalculated based on the user’s time zone. For example, a user in the UTC+1 time zone runs the Schedule daily update of the “Age” column action but does not change the value in the system setting. In this case, Creatio will display the default time as “02:30 AM” instead of 01:30 AM and change the displayed time zone from “UTC” to “UTC+1.”  

Type: time. Default value: “01:30 (UTC).”

Note. Note that if you change the time using the system setting and not via the action in the Contacts section, the new value will only apply after the next already scheduled age update, i.e., in 24 hours after modifying the system setting value. For example, if you change the system setting value from 01:30 AM to 04:30 AM on Monday at 3 PM, the nearest age update will occur at 01:30 AM on Tuesday and then – at 04.30 AM on Wednesday. If you change the time using the action in the Contacts section, the modifications will apply during the next age update.

Date of the last update of the contact ages (LastAgeActualizationDate) – use this setting to view the date of the last age update (performed as per schedule or by running the section action).
