Our presentations are all modified by "System" every few months, which resets all the dates they were last edited. This is very frustrating for users. Why does this occur?

Good afternoon Samuel,

This is a subject that was just broached a few weeks ago by one of our core developers. This is his explanation;

"We have a number of automated processes that are not initiated by the user (at least not directly) which make changes to the data and since there is no user involved the Changed By field is set to System.

One of the examples of such change is when a user deletes a display and the system goes through all schedules and presentations and removes that display from their distributions and timestamps them all with the current date."

I hope that answers your question.
