It would be really useful if I could use some sort fo standard syntax to define a default value on date fields. For example T-SQL like DATEADD(HH, 4, GETDATE()).
I am running regular imports, and although I have been working with unpublish dates mostly supplied, my client assumed that if a record was no longer in the import, it would no longer be on the site. A fair assumption (if wrong on many levels). Being able to set the unpublish date for a few hours ahead, just beyond the next import, would mean that if the record was not in the next import it would get unpublished shortly after.
The delete record when not in datasource feature is on the list of things to implement for V3. The only thing that worries me about this feature is when people are uploading an old datasource or the wrong datasource all records are removed from the site. I don't want to get the blame for that. But it's coming. I think setting the unpublish date is also full of risk. What happens when teh scheduler doesn't run? Then all content is removed.
But it's possible to do this.If you use the RecoredImported event you can set the value of unpublish date. I wrote a blogpost how to use this event a while back http://www.richardsoeteman.net/2011/04/29/AssignATemplateBasedOnDatasourceValueInCMSImport.aspx Maybe you can use it?
Hope this helps you for now.
I'll have a look at the blog post, thanks
If the scheduler doesn't run, the user can always log in and republish the node in question. Not ideal, but then, neither isthe scheduler not running

Perhaps 'Unpublish' instread of delete?
Ah that's a good one. For members still an issue but for Content I can give 2 options, Unpublish or Delete. Like that :) Thanks
