Go Live Date

Enter an appropriate go live date for the asset. The asset will not render to end users until this date is reached.

Review schedule

A review schedule is a formal review policy for assets, including nominated reviewers and escalation points. Select the required review schedule.

Review Date

Enter a date by which the asset requires review. Review schedule actions will be scheduled against this date.

Expiration Date

Once an asset has expired it will not longer render for end users. If required, enter an appropriate Expiration Date.

Expiration Category

Select an appropriate category for the asset to be relocated to once it has expired.

Archive Date

This is different to an expiry date, as the document retains all of its original attributes but is also simply marked as “Archived”. The document will not appear in searches unless an authorised user is specifically searching within the archived document. This would be accessed via a specific search facility using an template element such as Asset Browser.    

Archive Category

Select an appropriate category for Archived assets to be relocated to.

Deletion Date    

If required, enter a date when the asset will be deleted from Easysite.


Check to select the appropriate category or categories for the asset. Within the Asset Manager categories are used to store assets and also control access to the asset.


If required, select an owner for the asset. This is typically used to indicate the owner of the content of the asset, as opposed to the system user who last uploaded or edited the asset. Other meta tags may also have been created. If required, populate this with appropriate content.

4. Click Save to add the asset to a page.
