    Greetings,

    I am in need of some information.  I am looking for a way I could let a user specify a date to be published for a given CmsPage.  The reason for this is we have the case where something in the site may get approved but the admin may not want it to be published right away.

    Currently we are using workflow and having the user suspend approval until the date they want it visible.  We also use an Ordinal sort to allow them to custom order pages, however supporting a publish date on the pages (similar to news) would be very helpful.

    Anyone?

    Regards and Thanks,

    Jason

    Hello Jason,

    So far we don't have any workaround on how to do this because it will require the need of custom automation service of some kind which should go and change the status of the pages.

    We have discussed implementing this functionality in our future releases but we cannot commit to a time frame at the moment.

    Sorry for the inconvenience!

    All the best,

    Hi

    I'm wondering if there has been any progress on this, we are after something similar where we can set a page to publish it's self on a given date and time, and then expire on another date/time

    Thanks

    Hi web,

    The problem is that you cannot add additional metafields to pages. This functionality will be available from Sitefinity version 4.0 were users will be able to customize page properties.

    Sincerely yours,
