Validity period of site pages
Overview
When creating a page, a validity period can be defined for this page.
For example, if a page is related to a specific event (a tradeshow, a promotion), this page must not be displayed anymore from a given date.
To prevent from forgetting it:
  • WEBDEV will inform the developer when opening the project according to a configurable frequency. A GUI error will be automatically displayed.
  • The application server will send an email to a given address with a specific message.
The risks to forget are minimized.
How to proceed?

Defining the validity period of pages

To define the validity period of a page:
  1. Display the description of the page.
  2. In the "Details" tab:
    • Specify the validity period of the page.
    • Click the "Configure the reminders" button. In the window that is opened, specify:
      • the email address of the recipient of the reminder. If the WEBDEV application server is configured to find the expired pages, a reminder message will be automatically sent to this address.
      • the text added to the reminder message.
      • the date for sending the reminder (one week and one day before by default). This date will also be used to display a compilation error of GUI. This compilation error will indicate whether the validity period of the page was reached.
