How to setup automatic content expiration on WCM 6

In order to setup automatic content expiration you need to do the following:

1- Set the content expiry date.
2- Create "Scheduled Move" workflow action based on the "Expiry Date" to move content from Published to Expired stage. Add this action to your Published stage.
3- To guarantee the author will set the exp date, make it a required field in the Authoring Template. Also, set a default Workflow and a range of dates to be selected from. Click the icon besides "Expiry Date" under the AT "Default Content Settings" for options.

Do you want to have the expire action "Run on entering stage"? Or "Run on exiting stage"? (We're using Websphere Portal 7.0)

Thanks!
