Have you posted a job opening on The Network and forgot about it long after the position was filled? Or maybe you shared details of an event that happened months ago? As you know, there are things that can stay published forever. . .and things that are only relevant for a period of time.
For this reason, there is a handy tool on the Network New Post form that allows you to add an expiration date to your time-sensitive post.
To set your post to expire:
- Click on the text labeled: Optional: Add Links, Attachments, Expiry Date.
- Scroll to the bottom of the page until you find the field: Unpublish on. NOTE: an image of this field is attached below.
- Enter the date in the future when you would like your post to be removed. NOTE: If you're not sure of the expiration date at the time of posting, you can edit later. To do this simply log-in, go to your post, and click the link to "Edit and Resubmit" found in the top left corner of the browser window. You'll then be able to set an expiration date, fix typos, etc.
- Click Preview to complete your post.
Congratulations! You have now ensured that your post gets pulled when it is no longer relevant. Hopefully this will save you from answering emails on jobs that are filled or on conferences that have already taken place.
If you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact firstname.lastname@example.org. We’d love to help!
