Is there a term or word for a "reverse deadline"? Deadline is normally the date or time before which something must occur. I'm seeking a term for the date or time after which something may occur.
I am preparing instructions for announcing results which must be announced after a certain date. At the moment the text proposes to use the word 'deadline', but for the reasons mentioned above I will propose to reword it to "Results cannot be announced before..." but I would prefer to use a 'deadline'-type word instead.
