Manage publication feature has date and time selection and it triggers “Scheduled Page/Asset Activation” workflow" to publish content at later date and time, This workflow has “waiting for activation” participant step which sends inbox notification to admin.
If admin doesn’t respond to inbox notification, sling job “timeout job" reaches specified date and time, workflow process “com.day.cq.workflow.timeout.autoadvance.AbsoluteTimeAutoAdvancer” triggered to advance to next step “Activate Page/Asset”.
If admin does respond to inbox notification by “approving” the content, content will be published immediately rather than waiting for scheduled date and time.
What I am looking for is :
Author select a specific date and time, trigger a workflow
inbox notification sent to content approver group
content approved by a specified group user
content gets published at scheduled specific date and time and email sent to set of users to do cache invalidation etc...
I do not think OTB manage publication feature suffices above requirement.
