Description: This solution describes how to handle the format of the custom birth date field in Classy

Environment: All

Versions: All


When importing the custom birth date field from Classy the date is formatted with a UTC timestamp. Depending on the Raiser's Edge field receiving the data, you may need to add a dictionary to remove the timestamp during the import.

For specific-date fields, like Gift Date, Raiser's Edge is able to strip out a standard timestamp:

For fields that use "Fuzzy Dates," like Birth Date, Raiser's Edge cannot strip out the timestamp.  Additionally, the Classy API returns the Birth Date in a slightly different format than its standard fields:

A dictionary can be applied to the field to strip out the Birth Date timestamp. The attached dictionary can be imported into IOM. This knowledgebase article describes how to import dictionaries.
