Expiration date for galleries

Last Updated: Dec 16, 2013 03:39PM PST

Note: This feature is exclusive to Premium account subscribers.

Groups, Galleries, and Collections may be given an expiration date at which time access is changed to Private. Once private, the container will only be visible to the photographer. This is useful if you want a container to only remain visible on your site for a specific amount of time.
Galleries that are set to expire will become Private at midnight (of the photographer's timezone) the night of the expiration date.
(Ex: if you set a gallery to expire on December 10th, the gallery will expire on Midnight December 11th)
