Good afternoon!
Is it possible to add to the "forwarding" tab a select start date and end date for the forwarding action?
Thanks

I understand what you are asking for - it seems something similar to having a start/ expire data for an auto-reply/out-of-office setting (as found in outlook/exchange), right?

However, to add such a feature increases resource requirement/footprint of the software (as the function, gui, comapi and web admin would all need changing) and I would have to ask really how important or required/popular would this feature be. I do not know of this particular feature being on outrage mainstream equivalents (certain my not on exchange).

You may achieve your required intervals by using scripting (i did similar for the auto-reply feature which you may wish to use as a starting point and modify accordingly).
