Date Of Birth Field or Year in Date Field Extension

I would like to see a DOB range added for custom fields as I need to track this and the only way to currently do it is manually type the DOB date into the date field - can you add either an extension to the year range in date fields to go back say 60 years - or alternatively add an entire DOB add on for fields? Thanks

    Actually I see that this can be done - but is there a way to fix the scroll function so instead of clicking through a decade or so at a time this can be scrolled to the year requried?

    Hi @Geoff Wilkie

    Thank you for your feedback, we've passed it along to the team for consideration.

    Another option is to use a "Date Range" type of custom field. But keep in mind that if your final goal is to filter people by date of birth in a list, the best option is actually to use a text type of field to write down their DOB, and write the month down in full form, not in number (April, May, etc...). 

    This is because the conditions in Pipedrive's filter will not "see" the difference between a number that refers to the month and the number that refers to the day in a date-type of field.

    Have a great week!
