About Versioning of Territory Alignments and Rules
You can create similar alignments with different activation dates and expiration dates. This allows you to create different versions of rules that run at different times.
For example, you might assign all the postal codes in northern California to one representative and all the postal codes in southern California to another representative. The boundaries of the territories may change slightly at the end of the year. You can create an alignment that assigns representatives the appropriate postal codes for the year 2006, with expiration date of December 31, 2006, and an alignment that assigns the representatives the appropriate postal codes for the year 2007, with the activation date January 1, 2007.
