Scheduled publishing

#Overview

Hygraph gives you the ability to schedule content publishing, and unpublishing as one off, or as a collection (referred to as a "release").

#Terminology

SectionDescription
Scheduled ItemsOverview of all individually scheduled items that are not part of a release.
ReleasesOverview of all releases, and their scheduled items.

#How to schedule

When editing a content entry, instead of publishing right away, you can Schedule item for publishing at a later day and time.

You can find this option inside of the dropdown on the Publish button.

You will then be guided through the scheduling process. Here you can create a one off scheduled release, or bundle it with other scheduled items.
