Overview

The auto renewals feature in Expiration Reminder allows expiration items to be automatically renewed when the expiration date arrives. This is useful to tracking items that are certain to be renewed and that usually expired on the same date every year like for example driving licenses.

Configuring auto renewals

To configure auto renewals, go to the expiration item you wish to configure the renewal and scroll down until you find the Auto Renewal question:

er-auto-renewal-1

 

Then select the Yes option and a separate screen will show up. In this screen configure for how much time the item will auto renew. If the current expiration date is 2017-03-29 and you set auto renew for one year, when the expiration date arrives, the item will be automatically renewed to 2018-03-29.

er-auto-renewal-2

If you’d like to wait for an acknowledgement from someone else before the automatic renewal kicks in, then tick on the Do not auto renew until an acknowledgement is received check box. What this will do is that it’ll sent an email to the contacts and users involved in the expiration item notification system that contains a url so the user can acknowledge the request. Go to the acknowledgement section for more information.
