Administrators have the ability to add expiration dates to ID cards. Expiration dates can be added in several ways. ID cards can expire at a specific date and time, expire after a fixed duration, or expire at a specific date that’s added through a data import.
Process to Set the Expiration Date
Step 1: Log in to your IDMS account and from the Card Templates page, click on the “Edit” option on the right for the template you want to set an expiration date for. This will bring you to the Card Template Builder page.
Step 2: Once on the Card Template Builder page, click on the “Expiration” tab at the top of the page.
Step 3: Once on the Expiration page, you can turn on the “Show Expiration on Card” feature if you’d like the expiration dates to be displayed on your users’ ID cards.
Step 4: Then, you need to activate the expiration feature by clicking to enable the “Add Expiration” feature. Once the “Add Expiration” feature is switched on, you will be able to define the parameters for expiration.
Step 5: Then, you need to choose the data source for your expiration dates:
Option 1: If you select the data source “Expire at a Specific Date and Time,” enter in the specific date, time, and time zone that all cards in the template will expire at. On this date and time, all cards in that template will be automatically revoked from your users’ devices.
Option 2: If you select the data source “Expire After Fixed Duration,” enter in the specific time in days and hours that all cards in the template will expire at. Once this set day and time have been reached, all cards in that template will be automatically revoked from your users’ devices.
Option 3: If you select the data source “Import Expiration Dates,” expiration dates for individual cards will need to be imported through a CSV file.
