Set display duration

For many apps, you can set start and end dates and times for app records. Here's how to display dates and times for app records.

  • If no start and end date times are specified, once the app record is saved it displays on the website immediately and never expires.
  • If you set start and end dates and times, the app record displays on your site within the specified date and time ranges.
  • If you set only a start date and time, the app record displays on your site from the date and time specified forward.
  • If you set 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 and end date.
  • If a start date is set without specifying a start time, the time defaults to 12:00 AM.
  • If an end date is set without specifying a time, the time defaults to 11:59 PM.
