Altering the page publication date in workflow

Avatar

Level 1

I have an existing page that was sent via workflow to publish at midnight. The stakeholder now wants to have that page published for noon the next day. How do I prevent that page from publishing at the earlier time and instead publish on the next day.

 

I know we could tell the page author to revert back to the page's earlier state, and then re-enter the new content the next day for scheduled publication at noon. Any way to change the publication date without reverting content back?

@victortranatx : Are you using Activate later feature to publish page at midnight? If yes, you can terminate (before midnight obviously) the workflow to cancel page activation.

 

If you want to cancel this activation/deactivation, go to the Workflow Console to terminate the corresponding workflow.

Once initial publish request is cancelled, you can trigger another Activate Later request for the next day.

thanks.

Hi,

 

I am not sure if I am understanding correctly, but can you update the workflow to publish the page at the desired time?

 

Hope this helps.

Thanks Kamal! I went to the Tools > Workflow > Instances

 

...and then "terminated" the workflow. Was the answer I needed.
