We’ve been waiting for the ability to schedule SharePoint content in the modern experience, and the functionality has finally been released from Microsoft! Here’s your guide to scheduling content for future publishing in SharePoint.
Microsoft has released scheduled publishing for SharePoint Sites in the modern experience. This new functionality has been rolling out to organizations gradually for the past few months. You may have experience with scheduled publishing available in the classic experience, but we haven't had this functionality in modern until now. If you have content to post but aren't ready yet, you can select a time in the future for the news to "go live." Some potential use-cases for this feature:
To utilize this feature, the site owner must first enable it from the Pages library:
Once scheduling is enabled, you can schedule publishing of a page with the following steps:
Important: If you need to edit a scheduled page to update the content or change the scheduled time and date, you must schedule the page again by selecting `Schedule`. If you don't do this, the page will not publish at any time.
You can also review scheduled pages from the Pages Library.
Scheduling can work in conjunction with page approvals. If page approval is set up for a site, and an author schedules a page or news post for publish, the page must first be approved.
