IFTTT 1p Challenge Offset Date

Hello, I’m looking for someone that might be able to help me write filter code for IFTTT.

I want to do the 1p challenge, but I want to offset the start date to 1 November, this is so when the year “ends” my savings are available to me for Christmas. So on 1st November I save 1p, on 2nd November 2p and so on, through to saving £3.65 on 31 October the year after the challenge starts.

I couldn’t find anyway to do it and I’m not a coder so wouldn’t know where to start with the filters.

For the existing 1p challenges set up in IFTTT they all seem to begin on 1st January and you can’t change the start date.

Thank you in advance :slight_smile: :grinning:

From memory of dabbling with the filter code before, I think it just takes the julian date (aka 1 for jan 1, 365 for dec 31) and inputs that straight to the “Value” formula.

The “Reverse” one, I think does 366-Day to do the reverse.

So I think you’d need an if statement of some kind, to the effect of.

If Day >= 305 ; aka 1st Nov in Julian Dates
   then
   ValueToTransfer = 305 - Today
   Else 
   ValueToTransfer = Today + 60
End If

Or something to that effect.

I did a bit of dabbling with IFTTT filter code, will see if I can make something in the right syntax, but I may have deleted my account so tbc!
