* Date type custom fields are required to enable the Contact Event Date trigger.
Start by navigating to the Campaigns menu:
- Select Create Campaign
- Give your campaign an appropriate name, then select Continue
Once you are in the campaign builder:
- If you are an Admin, first choose the Users you would like to send on behalf of.

* Adding new modules, and the Contact Event Date trigger are not available to all ActivePipe users. Contact the ActivePipe support team to discuss enabling this in your account.
- Select Contact Event Date (1)
- Within the Contact Event Date module, use the Select Event dropdown to choose the contact event you want to trigger by (e.g: Birthday). Any date type custom fields you have in your account will be included here.*
- Choose the time of day that you would like this email to send, using the Hour, Minute and AM/PM selectors.
- To send the email on the recorded event date, leave the On/Before/After event selector as On.*
