Suggestion: Extend Deployment Time


#1

Greetings,

With the release of Release of Deployment Expiry time in console, which is fantastic btw, it got me thinking. Is it possible to add an “extend duration” button to a deployment?

A situation where this would come in handy: during testing. Usually it’s difficult enough to get enough folks on during a singular test phase. What’s worse is if you only intended for a six hour duration but end up having a lot of folks playing in your world. And then you’re stuck with the deployment going to expire! Those that are disconnected might not return and/or if they “cleared content to a camp location” (think a dungeon) they will very likely not be too thrilled to “fight back to the camp location.”

The ability to extend a deployment by 3/6/“stay up” flag might be useful for such situations.

Thank you for your time,
-Diz

Hi @Dizenth!

Thanks for the feedback ! Currently this can be done by changing the tag of the deployment to leave-me-up which will not take the deployment down until you hit STOP.

I hope this helps
