The following table provides an overview of the meaning of these dates, depending on the content type, and the way to configure them.

  Last Publication Date Last Edition Date
Author-it

Corresponds to the day the document was last published in Fluid Topics.

Corresponds to the most recent modification date (<ModifiedDate> tag) found in the XML file of the Author-it export file.

DITA

Corresponds to the day the document was last published in Fluid Topics.

Corresponds to the @modified attribute defined in the DITA map:

<critdates>

If @modified is not defined, "last edition" value is the day the document was last published.

It is also possible to define the @modified attribute at the topic level. When the @modified attribute is already defined at the DITA map level, the topic inherits the value from the map. Any existing value at the topic level is overwritten.

</ft:metas>
