Summary: How to update the static Age field based on how old an exhibitor is as of a given date.
ShoWorks has three different fields to indicate how old an exhibitor is: “Exhibitor Date of Birth”, “Exhibitor Age Calculated” and “Age”. Knowing the difference between these can is important when producing reports.
ShoWorks has a tool that allows the user to set exhibitor ages based on a desired date. See Tools > Update Exhibitor Age.
Exhibitor Date of Birth
- The birthdate of the exhibitor in #/#/## format.
- Exhibitor Age Calculated
- The age in years of the exhibitor as of “today” (based on your computer clock – which we assume is correct). This is a calculated field using the Exhibitor Date of Birth field and today's date, and cannot be changed.
- A static field that accepts numeric values input either by the exhibitor when registering, or by the ShoWorks user. This value will not change unless updated manually by the ShoWorks user or by using Tools > Update Exhibitor Age (to update the value for many exhibitors based on a pre-determined date).
Review the definitions above and to update the Age field for many exhibitors at once, use Tools > Update Exhibitor Age.
