Birthday and Anniversary Dates
Birthdays imported from TntConnect will be displayed in MPDX with a 4-digit year YYYY. MPDX requires a birth year in order to display a birth date. If a year was not added to your contacts in TnTConnect, MPDX will display 1900 as the default. This same rule applies to anniversary dates, as well.
