Reset custom field at target date

  • Hello,
    i’ve created a custom field containing a number in the user profile.
    Now i would like to reset this field to 0 at a certain date. I used this code but it seems that it doesn’t work. Any clues.

    //Snippet azzeramento gettoni
    $currentDate = date(‘Y-m-d’);
    $currentDate=date(‘Y-m-d’, strtotime($currentDate));
    $targetDate = date(‘Y-m-d’, strtotime(“06/05/2019”));
    $gettoniRimanenti = (int) get_field(‘gettoni’);

    if ($targetDate > $targetDate){
    update_field(‘gettoni’, ‘0’, “user_5”);
    echo “Not Today!”;

    Thanks in advance

  • When is this code run? Is it run on every page load and does it look at every user?

    Is this field also a user field or is it somewhere else? Shouldn’t it also tell acf what user to get the value from?
    $gettoniRimanenti = (int) get_field('gettoni, 'user_5');

    This would normally be something you’d need to set up in a cron task and you would need to read through every user and check each one.
