The plugin displays birthdays from your Contacts. Thus to work properly, you have to fill in the Birthday field for every contact that should be displayed by the plugin.

Tapping the plugin on the Today screen will enter Contacts. To configure the plugin tap its icon on the Today screen.

Verbose mode displays all upcomming birthdays, brief mode displays only a number of birthdays and anniversaries. Tapping the plugin in brief mode opens a dialog with details (like in Verbose mode).

You can select among 3 remind modes - only birthdays, only anniversaries, both birthdays and anniversaries.
