Content may be published at a future date using this utility, which is located under the Action button of any content object. Only users that are already allowed to publish the object may schedule its publication. The object can be scheduled for a specific day and time, and an email will be sent to a specified email address to confirm publication.
A common scenario would be to schedule a sales announcement for Saturday morning at 5am. Often times a user isn't available to directly publish. By scheduling publication the system will automatically publish the content at the specified time.
You may also schedule expiration of content. This can be done concurrently so that the sales announcement, for example, will be removed on Monday at 5am.
