How to schedule a post to automatically Publish or Unpublish

There may be times when you may wish to Publish, or Unpublish specific content based on a schedule. For example, only show Custom Tiles with branded or promotional content during a specific date range or only on certain days of the week.

Buzzspark allows you to schedule multiple actions for an item of content (Tile), with each action specifying whether the Tile should be Published, Queued or Disabled.

How to schedule Publish and Unpublishing of a Tile

Step 1: Navigate to the Moderation View

From the left menu, browse to Curate > Moderate.

Step 2: Locate the item you wish to Publish or Unpublish

See Refining and Searching for Content in Moderation View for details on how to search for specific items of content.

Step 3: Manage Publish Schedule for the Tile

Click on the Actions button of the item
Select the Publish Schedule option.

Step 4: Specify your scheduled actions

In the Scheduled Actions modal:
Timezone for scheduled actions – select the time zone that will apply for any scheduled action you specify
Click on the Add New Action button to add a new scheduled action.
For the scheduled action, specify the Action that you wish to take on the Tile such as Publish, Queue or Disable.
In the Schedule Time field for the action, enter the date/time you wish the action to occur in the format yyyy-mm-dd hh:mm.
Click on the trashcan icon if you need to delete a scheduled action, or click on the Add New Action button if you need to add another scheduled action. You can add multiple scheduled actions, for instance set the Tile to Publish at 2021-09-01 01:00 and then set the Tile to Queued at 2021-09-01 23:59, etc.
Click Apply when done to save changes

When an item of content has scheduled actions, the Scheduled flag appears below the Status buttons of the Tile for quick visual identification.
