    Hello,

    I'm trying to integrate with mailchimp but on jotform the only options I see are name and email but my mailchimp form also has birthday.  When I click the dropdown on jotform it wont show any category for birthday (only email and name).

    Hi,

    I was able to reproduce issue with the MailChimp integration.

    But I think you should also fix your form a bit. Please try not repeating the "Newsletter" field at least more than once. And try to make the birthday field a required field at least, so that you can be able to capture this data in your mailchimp list.

    I will do a further test to confirm if there is a bug on the MailChimp integration.

    I will update you about this in a while.

    Thanks.

    MailChimp's birthday fields can only accept month and day values, i.e., in MMDD format only. None of the built-in date fields on JotForm matches this format. That is the reason why we have not included it in our integration wizard.

    We suggest adding a 'date' field to your MailChimp list instead.
