Configuring the deadline warning time (soft deadline) in Enterprise Server 9

Configuring the deadline warning time (soft deadline) in Enterprise Server 9

Enterprise can warn a user when a deadline is near. However, a user should also be aware how much time is left until the deadline is reached.

By defining a deadline warning time — referred to as the "soft deadline" — with an agreed upon time period (for example 2 days before the deadline ends), the user has a much clearer way of knowing how much time is left.

This deadline warning time is controlled by the following option:

  • File: configserver.php file
  • Name of option: DEADLINE_WARNTIME
  • Possible values: any number (specifying the number of seconds)
    Alternatively, it can be multiplied by the number of days and hours by using the following format:

number of days*number of hours*number of seconds

  • Default setting: 2*24*3600 (two days)
  • Example:

define ('DEADLINE_WARNTIME', 2*24*3600);
