REVALIDATION RULES - this function is for suggesting next expiry date based on the endorsement's issue date. If you leave both 'validity time' and 'revalidation' window set to 0, function is disabled.
Validity time - holds information regarding how many months from the endorsement's issue date that endorsement will be valid.
Revalidation window - holds information for how many days before the endorsement's expiry date you can revalidate the endorsement and still count validity time from the last expiry date.
Round to the end of the month if outside revalidation window - if checked and before revalidation window, your validity will be rounded to the end of the month.
Action required when expiring - it is a box where you can input a short description of an action that crew member has to perform in order to revalidate this endorsement. This description will be sent along with email reminder to the crew member.
Please note that you can always overwrite the calculated expiry date. The purpose of this function is to minimize error entries, rather than fully automate the process.
