This article will cover scheduled Announcements, including:
Scheduling an Announcement
Options for scheduling an Announcement sit within the Draft Announcement workflow - for a detailed explanation of this workflow, you can visit our Announcements help article.
On the Preview Announcement step (Step 3 out of 4) of this workflow, you'll either be prompted to "Schedule and publish later", or "Publish now". Select the "Schedule and publish later", which will bring up a calendar-style date selector where you can select the date, time, and relevant timezone to publish your announcement:
You'll see a success message on this screen confirming it, and a banner along the top of the draft announcement will show the scheduled date and a Reschedule button if this needs to be changed.
Under the LaunchNotes Page tab, under Preview Announcement, you'll be able to see the future URL of this announcement, which will go live when scheduled to be published.
When you exit out of the Draft Announcements workflow, you'll be able to see this under the Announcements tab, under the Scheduled section.
Important points to note around scheduling Announcements:
Scheduling an Announcement will respect the notifications settings (i.e. categories, channels, etc) when it publishes.
If you remove the headline or all of the content of a scheduled Announcement, this will prevent it from being published.
You will receive a reminder email from LaunchNotes 24 hours prior to the scheduled publishing time of your Announcement.
Rescheduling a scheduled Announcement
There are two ways to reschedule a scheduled Announcement. The first, mentioned above is by clicking into the Announcement (under the Scheduled section) and selecting a new date under the Reschedule button on the banner.
You can also reschedule from within the Announcements tab by selecting the date field of the Announcement, as shown below:
Unscheduling a scheduled Announcement
You can unschedule your Announcement by selecting the 3 dots on the relevant Announcement under the Announcements > Scheduled tab:
