    Dear Anirudh,

    Thank for yr post, it very explanatory.

    Currently our version of the report has also valid from – to time too.

    May I ask,

    1) validity from date/time: if the alert will be sent only after the system date / time is >= with the  valid from date / time of the alert’s value?

    2) validity to date / time: will the alert remain in the REX app. till the TO date and time ? and after that date it will be removed?

    3) if the user does not open the REX app  and /or does not read the alert and the validity TO date / time passes, will the alert be removed?

    Thank you in advance.

    BR,

    Elly Leondi
