Product Tips: Start & End Dates
If you need to schedule a specific start and end date for any type of registration or competition entry landing page, it’s easy to do so in Clicktools. You just simply create an instance within the deployment page to ensure that your URL is only active during a set period of time.
When the start date is checked, anyone clicking on the URL link before midnight on the specified date will see a message explaining that ‘the survey does not start until <start date>, please try again after this date.’
The same principal applies to the close date. If the close date box is checked and dated, anyone clicking on the survey link after midnight on the specified date will get the message, ‘Unfortunately the survey closed on <close date>. Thank you for your interest.’
Of course if you are using language variations then the message is translated into the appropriate version.
