Agility CMS offers powerful publication scheduling that allows you to plan your content in advance and schedule when content should automatically publish or un-publish itself at any date or time in the future.

What Can You Schedule?

Agility provides the ability for Scheduling on the following:

  1. Content Items
  2. Pages
  3. Page Module

Release Date vs Pull Date

With any Content Item, Page or Page Module, you can set a scheduled date with a Release Date or a Pull Date. Note that you must click "Publish" after setting the scheduling information to tell Agility to start the schedule for that version of the item.

Release Date

When the item should be Released or Published to the Live site.

If the item is not yet live on the website (eg: it has never been published, or it was unpublished) than this item will not be shown on the website until the Release Date passes.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

When the item should be Pulled or Un-Published from the Live site.

Note that because of caching, there may be up to a 10-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.

Redirect URL

If configuring Scheduling on a Page, you can set the Redirect URL if you wish to redirect to another page before the Release Date has elapsed or after the Pull Date has passed.
