How to set up start and end dates for a widget

You can schedule specific dates on which a widget will start and stop to be displayed. This can be really useful if you use a widget to notify website visitors of a specific event, such as a conference, a webinar, a product release or any other news that needs to be shown on your website for a limited time only. Using the scheduling options you can create such notifications in advance and be sure that they will automatically switch off when they are no longer needed. Here is how you can choose start and end dates for your widget:

Step 1

Login to your GetSiteControl account, find the necessary widget in the list and click on the Edit button. If you want to create a new widget, click on the green Create widget button.

Step 2

Switch to the Behavior tab and scroll down to the Start/Stop display section. Select the necessary dates in the Start on and Stop on fields. You can specify both of them or configure only one of the dates if you need to start or stop the widget on a specific date.
