document lifetime and resubmission

we would like to publish documents for a defined time periode with setting document lifetime. after the lifetime is over (or a litte earlier) the document should be resubmissed to the author.

has anyone already faced a similar situation?

    Hi Matthias,

    first, welcome at SDN!

    About your question: That's quite an interesting topic. Anyhow, it is not covered by the standard implementation.

    Setting document to "active" or "inactive" is done by two Scheduler Tasks, see

    So a solution would be to write some own Scheduler Tasks doing something similar, ie check if the valid time ends in the next n days, and if, send a message to the author (a reminder or whatever you think of).

    Sounds like a feature SAP should think of to extend within time-dependent publishing (with parameters "Remind before activation?", "Remind before deactivation?", "Timeframe for reminders", "Reminder Channel" or so).

    Best regards
