Set Display Duration for Apps

Set Display Duration for Apps By: Michael Kuzniar

For many apps, you can set start and end dates and times for app records.  For example, you can specify start and end dates and times for each article contained within an Article Library.

Here is how display dates and times act for app records.

  • If no start and end dates and times are specified, once the app record is saved it displays on the website immediately and never expires.
  • If you enter start and end dates and times, the app record displays on your site within the specified date and time ranges.
  • If you enter only a start date and time, the app record displays on your site from the date and time specified forward.
  • If you enter only an end date and time, the app record displays on your site immediately until the specified end date and time.
  • To remove the Display Duration for an app, remove the start date and end date.

If a start date is entered without specifying a start time, the time defaults to 12:00 AM. This means that the app record will display at the very beginning of the day on the start date specified.

If an end date is entered without specifying a time, the time defaults to 11:59 PM. This means that the app record will no longer display at the end of the day on the end date specified.

If an end date is entered and you specify the time 12:00 AM, you will see the end time saved as 12:05 AM. This means in essence that the app record will no longer display at the beginning of the day on the end date specified.
