Description

If you publish a CO with a limited period of time, the start and end time is equal.
It should be interesting if the start time is 00:00 and end time 23:59, why? Because the start and end date is also equal.

Some users want to publish a CO for one day (from today till today) so they are not looking to the start and end time.

I believe this is a matter of personal taste. Because some users will want to publish it for one day. Others want to publish it for the next day. And other people would like to publish it for a period of one semester... It's not logical to hard code this into the code.

We found out during our chamilo-course for our teachers that they don't bother to look at the time.
Instead of publishing it for 1 day, the CO is not published.

What Michael suggests is more user friendly.

Very strange behavior that people would want to limit it for a specific period but do not bother to look at the timestamps...

#4

Yes, indeed, your right.
But they are low level users and only concerned about the day.
They get a bit confused.

As i said before, if we change this for you to the same day from 0 - 24h then other people will start complaining that they only want to publish it for an hour, or only want to publish it for the next day. Everyone has his own default behavior for this feature and we can only add one default value.

OK. Leave it as it is.

It's just weird that the default value eventually leads to no publication. Not even an hour.

#7

Updated by Sven Vanpoucke over 8 years ago

I'll change it to at least an hour so the publication would not be useless then.
