Scheduling documents for publishing

Kentico allows you to specify when a document is published. When you edit a document on its Form tab, you can typically find the Publish from/Publish to fields at the bottom of the form: Scheduling documents for publishing

When you set the Publish from/Publish to values, the document will be displayed on the website only during the given time period.

  • If you do not set the Publish from value, the document is displayed on the live site immediately.
  • If you do not set the Publish to value, the document stays published until manually unpublished.

Scheduling documents that use workflow/versioning

If you set the Publish from/Publish to values to documents that use workflow, they still need to be approved before being published. Once approved, the document is published by a scheduled system process. The process is set to execute every minute by default. The process only publishes the document if the document already reached its Publish from time. You can check the status of this process in the Scheduled tasks application. Choose the website and search for the Content publishing task.
