Relationship Attribute "Begin Date" and "End Date"

Description

With all relationships you can specify a begin and an end date. These dates state from when to when the information that the realtionship gives is true. E.g. if you say that Sonja Kraushofer is/was a member of L'âme Immortelle, then you might want to state from when she joined and when she left. (If someone has a better example, please replace this --DonRedman)

Specifying dates is completely optional, and leaving the end date blank indicates that a relationship is still active today.

Used with Types

This attribute can be applied all AdvancedRelationshipTypes. It might, however, not make sense with all types. In this case just leave it blank.
