We have a quick update to scheduled publishing that should make things easier for those using this handy feature.
How scheduled publishing used to work:
You set your scheduled publish day and time and it sets your content to draft. This was fine for new content, but not ideal for already published content. If you wanted to maintain your published content and save a new draft for later scheduled update this didn't work.
The new way:
You can now save a published version AND save a draft version scheduled for later publish. This also makes it possible to keep two versions running: 1) Your published content and 2) your draft content scheduled for publish later.
I hope you like this update to scheduled publishing. This update was shipped in direct response to a user that needed a better experience with this feature.
