TimeDiff Warning

Some articles may not be displayed in the SFX menu if they have an embargo or moving wall period. You can have a warning displayed in the SFX menu that an article may not be available because of an embargo or moving wall period. Select the checkbox to display the warning in the SFX menu. To have a tooltip display to explain the warning, select Enable tooltip for timediff warning.

This is what the warning looks like in the SFX Menu: This article may not be available because of an embargo period.

The warning usually appears when the year is used in the OpenURL but not the complete date, yyyy/mm/dd. SFX is not sure whether or not there is full text when checking the embargo date against the year in the OpenURL so when TimeDiff is enabled, the targets are displayed as a "just in case" there is full text.

TimeDiff set up is located under General Configuration in the SFX Menu Configuration module. More information about the TimeDiff Warning can be found on page 361 of the SFX General Users Guide.
