Is there a way to create a field that calculates days til birthday, expiration, etc in Marketo. I'd like to use this field as a trigger to send upgrade nurture communications and trigger other events.

Open to workarounds

- Have tried building a calculated field in SF. That doesn't work because the field doesn't sync to SF unless there is an actual change to the date (as opposed to a calculation).

- Have tried using the Wait Token in the flow but I keep getting errors.

- Would love to see "Date is in NEXT 90 DAYS" as a Smartlist constraint but that isn't available.
