I am not sure why you think we attributed the ebay policy change to Auctiva. In the very first post I reference, "Ebay's forced relisting in conjunction with its GTC mandate." As a long time Auctiva user, I clearly understand the differences between the two companies.
The "end date" in the Active Listings Page is now completely obsolete, since it says GTC. It would make sense to show the Start date (rendering it a valuable field in the effort to mange inventory). The use of a folder with a day or date is a possible workaround but it sort of makes my current folder system useless.
