Timebased Publishing Service

Hi together,

we use in an EP5.0-SP6-Portal for some folders the timebased-publishing-service (and sometime additional versioning).

The way to create an new document with a validity period is very inconvenient:

After creating a new document the validform-date is the same as the validto-date, so you have to do a second workstep to change the validto-date (and if you use tbp and versioning together you get an new version).

My questions:

<b>1. Is it possible to set a default validity period for documents (e. g. 3 months) so the second workstep is only necessary, if the author wants to differ form the default-value?

2. Is it possible to make the properties validform and validto mandatory, so the properties appears when you create or upload an new document?</b>

Best regards,

    Hi all,

    currently there is no possibility for normal documents to maintain the validity period during creation. Only if you use XML Forms, you may create a form with the valid from and valid to as mandatory fields.
