Timeframes

Throughout the program, you will encounter what the program calls "timeframes". Timeframes allow the program to calculate a date, which will then be compared to the current date, and determine whether the feature using the timeframe falls within the settings.

Timeframe

A timeframe will always have six fields:

YY MM DD HH MM SS

The fields represent "Years", "Months", "Days", "Hours", "Minutes", and "Seconds".

Example: User Expiration Date

When creating a new member from the admin control panel, if you select "Expiration » Add Time From Today", you will be prompted with the above 6 fields. Here's what will happen based on what you input into the timeframe fields:

YYMMDDHHMMSSResult
010600000000The user's account will expire 1 year and 6 months from today.
000115000000The user's account will expire 1 month and 15 days from today.

Example: Custom Autoresponders

When creating a custom autoresponder, you will be prompted to input a timeframe for when this e-mail will be triggered. Take these examples:

Send Based OnYYMMDDHHMMSSResult
Before Expiration000014000000E-mail will be sent 14 days before the user's account expires.
