By default, the dial will be set to 0 but under unique circumstances, the email can be sent out sooner if the Practice requires it. Click the Arrows button 2019-09-19_08-13-09.png or type in the exact number of days in the field to change the days.

The Right Arrow button 2020-01-08_13-47-28.png will open up the email template window to select the specific birthday email the Practice would like to use. 


The default template to use will be GT-Happy Birthday General. If the Practice would like to create and customize their own birthday template, the Creating an Email Template article can assist in that process. Click the Select button after making the template selection. 

Once the Automated Birthday Email is set, click on the Save button at the bottom-right corner of the Global Setup window.
