Tech Tip: Scheduling news, blog, or podcast items
If you’re like many of our other users, you have at least set up a news feed, blog, or podcast channel in the Syndication manager just to see how it all works. But one thing you may not have noticed is that you can also schedule new items to be published to the site.
Let’s say you will be on vacation next week but want to be sure your news feed, blog, or podcast is kept fresh with new content. Simply go ahead and add the new item but before you save it, put the desired publish date in the “Publish Date” field. That way no one will see it until the day you have set for it to publish when it magically appears on the site while you’re away relaxing on vacation. Now isn’t that handy? Enjoy your vacation—while your site visitors enjoy fresh content!
