New SharePoint Feature

From Microsoft Corporation

MC212265, Stay Informed, Published date: May 7, 2020

We’re introducing the ability for SharePoint page authors to schedule pages and news posts for publication at a future date and time.

This message is associated with Microsoft 365 Roadmap ID 62892.

When this will happen

  • We will begin gradually rolling this out to Targeted Release customers in late-May; the rollout will be complete in early June.
  • We will update this post when we have information about the rollout for Standard Release customers.

How this will affect your organization

Schedule on ribbon

SharePoint site owners will have the option to enable scheduling on their sites; it is disabled by default.

When scheduling is enabled, page authors will be able to set a date and time for their pages and news posts to publish.What you need to do to prepare

You might want to notify site owners that they can enable scheduling on their sites and notify page authors that they may be able to schedule publication if the site owner has enabled the feature. You might also update your user training and documentation.
