I feel like I remember reading something on this, but wasnt there a setting to tell (all of, automatically) our Co-Creator models that we are on vacation? and therefore can not be ordered?

If not, I suppose I can just go through and manually set them to view only.

I would also like to see a vacation mode.

At the moment it stops me from putting a lot of co-creators online, if i need to manually disable them in case of vacation or full schedule.

And setting the time to 2 weeks extra seems like a good way to scare of customers...

You have two options:

- on the object's page, 'unpublish' the co-creator. In this way, the default (unmodified) object will still be available for purchase, and external links (like Google!) will continue to work.

- you can set the object to 'private'. In this way, it will be completely removed from the Shapeways website during your vacation. External links will break, and I guess I don't have to tell you that's bad for business.

There's no switch that does this for all models at once, onfortunately. I'll suggest that to our website developers.
