To help our film offices create an efficient process for keeping listings in their Production Directory as current as possible, we implemented an effective Expiration Date on all listings.
1. Default Expiration Date
We can set the Expiration Date default to any time period that would be helpful (e.g., 1 year, 2 years, 10 years, etc.). When a listing is Expired, it will automatically be hidden from the Production Directory.
This means that a listing will be based on two factors:
- Status = Public/Approved; and
- Expiration Date.
2. Manually Override Expiration Date
The system also has the ability for you to use the default expiration date yet you can manually override those dates if you prefer for certain listings.
3. Option for Both Default and Manual
You can have all records using the default Expiration Date and only ‘Change Date’ for those exception records where you want those listings to always appear or vice versa. This Expiration Date video will walk you through step-by-step to illustrate how you can use the Expiration Date editable field on a case-by-case basis.
4. Expired Listings
You can also do a quick CREW > Search for all Expired listings or to-be Expired listings within a certain date range etc. You can bookmark the link with the search result and use it as a way to review on a regular basis the expired listings.
Having the option to either use the default OR manually setting your own dates will provide you with the complete flexibility to handle your process as efficiently and effectively as needed.
