Scheduling for publishing pages

Hi All,

LIFE IS BEAUTIFUL ๐Ÿ™‚ I hope we all are safe:) STAY SAFE, STAY HEALTHY ๐Ÿ™‚ STAY HOME ๐Ÿ™‚

Today is with very good news ๐Ÿ™‚ for News editors / Content editors / Developers life become bit easier now.

In SharePoint online, News scheduling is available as OOB feature now. By looking at pain I fill this is very important feature Microsoft rolled out.

Today morning when I went to “Pages Library” of my News communication site I saw the “Scheduling” option.

From the above “Scheduling” option we need to enable the “Scheduling” for pages library as

Once we have enabled “Scheduling” option for “Pages Library”, we can schedule our publishing pages.

Scheduling option appears in our pages properties as

Once we have scheduled the page, “Schedule” button appears at the top right corner of the page as

Scheduling and Approval Process:

Scheduling also work along with page approvals process. If page approvalย is set up , and if an author schedules a page or news post for publish, the page must first be approved.

  • After the page is approved, the page isย published at the scheduledย date and time.
  • If the page is approved at a time later than the scheduled time, it publishes immediately upon approval.
  • Ifย the page is not approved, page is not published.
