Hi everyone

Still learning my ropes around Klaviyo and the dynamic variables. I found an article that allows you to calculate a future date using the “today” syntax, however does anyone know if it’s possible to calculate a future date using an event trigger property? I assumed that by adding the ‘days_later:XX’ filter, this would have made this possible, but it’s throwing an error. 

Variable Code: {{ event.Invoice_Date|days_later:90|format_date_string|date:'d F o'|default:'' }}

Scenario: Wanted to communicate to customers payment due dates based on their order invoice date. 

Any suggestions and guidance would be highly appreciated!

Hi there @Pez

 

Welcome to the Community! Happy to help! 

 

Great job investigating so far! The reason why your syntax isn’t working is because the |dayslater filter only works for “today” and can’t be replaced with another property. I know some customers have previously reformatted the date as a unix timestamps to concert this, however, I’m going to raise this question to our tempalte team and see what I can find! 

 

Thanks for participating in the Community!

I have a similar issue.

I need to calculate and display a future date based on the Birthday profile property. If anyone has any work-arounds, I am all ears. This comes up a lot for my clients, especially regarding discount code expiration.
