Hi all,

I've been discussing labelling with Marli Mesibov here. 

Are there reasons for labelling it "Hide", "Hide in Menu" etc.? 

– Other than the fact that it's always been like that in TYPO3 CMS?

> I recommend that we consider changing the terminology under Visibility - the "Hide Before" and "Hide After" labels.
> My reasoning for this is that we want to focus on what the user is doing, rather than what they are undoing. They are undoing hide, but what are they doing? A few possibilities:
> Publish
> Show
> or just, considering the title is "Visibility," using "Start Date" and "End Date."
> Thanks,
> Marli

Best. Rasmus
