Birthday gadget

It would be nice to have a gadget that would show members' birthdays whether by day, week, or month.

        Birthdays are important to our group too. We are a women's only social organization. We only track birth month and birth year on our profile record as well. Then we created a "birthday gals" page, and created save searches for each month and one saved search for the year. We created links to the saved searches. The members can click the month link and see whose with it is ( we use the same gadget as profile / featured members) to display photos, show the month and date of the birthday girl ( sorted in birthday order). That way the members can click on their name or email address and send an email message to them right away. If they want to search for the birthday of a special friend, they can also do that by clicking the saved search for all birthdays.

        We have also used the WA email templates and created custom club birthday cards. All you have to do each month, is send to the "saved search" list and have ecards sent to members to members.

        We need this too! We're a social organization and members' birthdays are important to other members. Also, we would like to bulk upload the list of birthdays and keep them on the events calendar permanently. We need this so we do not have to rely on someone to add birthdays every year. Also, would be nice if each person received an email on their birthday as an event announcement... any ideas?

        This is a great idea. I also would like to be able to search any date field in this manner.

        We are a women's social club (newcomers) We have always listed members with birthdays in the given month in our monthly newsletter. Members use this to send cards.

        We would like the ability to have a page that can be accessed and show the current month's calendar and the member's name on their respective birthday. Populated automatically from member profile information.

        Note: our birthdays are in the member profile as month and day only.

        We have come up with a barely adequate solution to this problem and are open to other workarounds. We set up a directory report that is sorted in birthday order. Members can access the page and scroll down to the current month. Do able but not as useful as a calendar page with names.

        Wonderful idea - doing it now manually. Widget could show on a page whose birthdays are occurring during the month by day. Would also be nice to send an email on each persons birthday.

        Our organisation needs this too. Member birthdays (and anniversaries) are shared in local council minutes to afford members the opportunity of wishing each other well on the occasion. Currently we have to export the dates and do the list in Excel; not ideal.

        +1 for this functionality please.

        We would like to be able to automate transferring member's birthdays from the member directory to the event calendar.
