Scheduling a Publish

In certain instances, you may want to make edits to a page but delay the time of publishing on the website. This can be useful when you are preparing for an upcoming campaign that launches on a certain date, or when you are planning ahead for a future semester's website updates.

Omni CMS has a feature that works like a time machine, so that you can schedule a page to be published in advance. As long as you know the date and time to publish, all of your future website wishes can come true.
