Managing Date of Birth and Age

Fuel Cycle allows community managers to decide which of the following date fields to collect at community registration:

  • Day
  • Month
  • Year (this is always required when the date of birth field is enabled)

A community member’s age is calculated from these the date of birth inputs, and we have introduced special conditions to calculate age when the precise date of birth is not captured in the community:

  • If Month and Year are selected (e.g. April 1970), then age is calculated from the first day of the birth month
  • If Day and Year are selected (e.g. 5, 1970), then age is calculated from January 1st of that year
  • If Year is selected, (e.g. 1970), then age is calculated from January 1st of that year
