New Feature: Item deadlines- set your default value

What's happened?

When an item is added to Warp It the member sets a deadline for the item. 

This is the very last point in time that the old owner can have the item in their possession

What is the the problem we are seeking to solve?

People are busy they usually want items shifted yesterday. However if a short deadline is added it reduces the chance that  match is made in the time frame and the item might get wasted. 

The original default deadline of 3 weeks is enough for most.  And many members just accept this period of time.

However if you want to push this period you can- to maximise the chances of a match.

What is the new feature?

We have introduced the ability to fix your own default deadline when a member adds an asset.

You can also set a default "advertise from" date.

How does this help you?

This means that it is more likely that an item will find a home rather than being wasted. 


What do you need to know? 

Nothing really- my advice would be to max out this default deadline as much as possible.

To look at tthis new setting go to admin>settings>control assets.


Possible issues

None. The member can override this feature of it causes a problem.
