Creating dates before 1970 in custom objects
Answer ID 6383   |   Last Review Date 03/18/2019

How do I enter in a date before 1970 for custom objects?

Environment:

Custom Objects, Date and Date/Time type
August 2013 and newer versions

Important!

Custom Objects work differently than Custom Fields. See "Types of custom fields that can be added" for information on Custom Objects. 


Resolution:

Beginning in the August 2013 release, custom object "Date" fields support dates from January 1, 1902. 

Note: This option is available only for Date type fields.  For Date/Time type, the minimum is January 1, 1970.

To create a Date type custom object, follow these steps:

  1. Navigate to the Objects Designer
  2. Click on the arrow next to RN to expand the menu
  3. Click on Contact
  4. Click 'Add New Field'
  5. Choose Date
  6. Fill out the required fields
  7. Save and deploy
  8. After the deploy has competed, add the newly created custom object to your contact workspace.

For additional information, refer to the 'Add a field to a custom object' section in online documentation for the version your site is currently running. To access Oracle Service Cloud manuals and documentation online, refer to the Documentation for Oracle Service Cloud Products.
