Sometimes the content you upload to Showpad is linked to special events like promotions, sales competitions or individual campaigns. In such cases, you can upload assets to Showpad and set a release and expiry date to ensure they are available in the correct time frame. You can also choose to set only a release date without an expiry date and vice versa. For users, expired content is removed from Experiences. In collections and Shared Spaces, the asset will be greyed out and inaccessible. Content with a future release date won't be visible yet for your users.
See how it looks
- Set a release and expiry date for temporary, promotional content
- If the release date is not reached yet, the asset won't be visible for users
- Expired assets are still visible in the content library and Experience Builder
- Expired content is removed from Experiences and greyed out in Collections and Shared Spaces
- You can change the expiry date to make assets accessible again
Do this step by step
- Click Library in the top menu. Choose a division, if relevant.
- Click the asset for which you want to set a release and expiry date. Click the pencil icon when hovering over Availability.
- Select a release and expiry date and click Save.
- You can give multiple assets the same release and/or expiration date in bulk. To do so, choose your assets and click Edit.
- Under the File life cycle, select a release and expiry date.
Keep in mind that assets will be released at the start of the day you have chosen and will expire at the end of the day you have selected, using the time zone that was set for your account.
- On Showpad's Online Platform you'll notice that in the Experience Builder expired content is grayed out. When hovering on the asset, an Expired label appears.
- Users won't be able to open expired content on their devices or the Web app. Expired assets will be removed from Experiences, and greyed out in Collections and Shared Spaces. If a user attempts to open an expired asset from a Collection, it will alert them the asset is expired and give them an option to remove it.
In a Shared Space, users will see a grey out asset thumbnail labeled expired, and if they attempt to open it, it will alert them that access has been revoked.
