Activating this change will extend the format of the date in your SchemeServe Question Set to include a default value of 12 a.m.


During the Get Quote process a Client or Agent can then choose the time of day that cover should commence – in most cases this will be 12 a.m.

This also effects Renewals and Adjustments.

Using Time to get Expiry Dates

If a Case is created from a Scheme using the Date and Time format then the time is given using Date/Hour/Min/Sec


The expiry date of such a scheme is calculated as:
