In Beacon you can see the length of your validity period.

1.Your validity period specifies the time period that your document is valid for after it has passed the audit. The value of the validity period is set in the Document Setting (Manage > Document Settings)  

  1. Typically for use with items that need to be checked on a semi-regular basis. (E.g. Fire Extinguishers, Elevators)

Once you create an audit for the document, the validity period will be visible in the scheduler, as a light blue box.


After the audit has been passed then the boxes will be green to reflect that the audit is complete and valid for the time period selected in the document setting..
