Wireless Protection: Give vouchers an expiration period or an expiration date

It should be possible to give hotspot vouchers an expiration period in the voucher definition so that they get a fixed expiration date when they are created.
After the expiration date the voucher should be disabled (and maybe automatically deleted) no matter if it is in use or not. The expiration date should be shown in the user portal and printed on the voucher.

This is important to us because we create an amount of vouchers for our guests when they visit us. Some guests use it some not. Some vouchers lie around for an amount of time. At the moment you have no control which vouchers can be deleted. If they had a expiration date old vouchers would expire by themselves and would clean up automatically.

        I think this would be a bad way of implementation because this way you would have to options:
        1. short validity period = you have to use the voucher right after creation and can't create them in advance
        2. long validity period = you can create several vouchers in advance but the user can use it much longer then you want to

        It would be much better to have 2 separate time spans: validity after activation (first use) and expiration (counting from creation)

        Because vouchers only get active after the first login and active vouchers already expire after the validity period there could be an option that the creation date of this voucher is equal to the starting date of the voucher.

        This goal could be achieved e.g. with a checkbox in the voucher definition page: creation date = starting date
        or with a checkbox in the user portal where a new voucher is created.
