Content Item Scheduling

Release Date

If the item is not yet live on the website (eg: it has never been published, or it was unpublished) than this item will not be shown on the website until the Release Date passes.

If there is already a published version of this item that is currently live on the site, and you schedule this item to be released in the future, the previous item version will STAY live on the site until the release date passes and the new version is displayed.

If you do NOT want the currently published version of an item to stay on the website while you are waiting for the release date to pass, simply Unpublish the item to take it down from the site, and then schedule the new version of it with the release date you require in the future.

Pull Date

Set the pull date on an item to have it taken down from the site on a given date and time.

Note that because of caching, there may be up to a 15-minute delay before an item is pulled or released to the site.  If you need up to the minute precision, you should contact your implementation partner to ensure the cache can be cleared for your content to be released at that moment.
