Activate expiration notification

skärmdump tidsstyrning se över innehåll

Reminder is used to be notified that a page needs to be reviewed after a certain period of time since being published. The e-mailed reminder contains a link to the page. The recipient can then click on the link, read through the contents and decide if something should be changed, whether the page should be republished (approve existing content) or unpublished. In this way the pages are kept up to date with the correct content.

It is possible to centrally set this box to be checked by default. It is good idea, for example, to have a quality policy where all pages are reviewed after a certain period of time. This setting is only a recommendation, and you can uncheck the box in the publishing dialogue to prevent reminders.

Who receives reminders?

  • Set recipient - The person who is set as recipient under Site settings -> Functions-> Best before
  • The publisher - It there's no set recipient then the the person who published the page (at the time the reminder was set) gets the reminder. That is, if they have their e-mail address in the directory service.
  • Site manager - If the publisher lacks an e-mailadress then the reminder go to the e-mail address set up under Site settings -> Email
  • Server manager - If there's no Site manager the reminder goes to the e-mail address set up on the server object.

Only one of the above will receive the reminder unless more recipients are listed in the recipient list under Site Settings -> Best before.

When is the reminder sent?

The system suggests in 6 months time unless changed centrally, see Central settings for best before.

If you have checked the box, this date is left as is (the system does not suggest a new date), but you can change the date if you want.

Short name

If you have a URL style that contains a short name, the Short name field also appears where you can give the page the short name you want:
