How does the process behind effective and expiration dates work?

Monitor Lifecycle

"Monitor Lifecycle", the job that promotes your document from "Approved" to "Active" status, runs three times an hour on the server side.

  • If your effective date is set in between 12.20 and 12.40, your document is going to be promoted around 12.45.
  • If your effective date is set in between 12.40 and 13.00, your document is going to be promoted around 13.05.
