Publish Later Option for Publisher in notification box.

Hi All,

We have a requirement to provide content Publisher capability to set a date for Page Activation in the workflow.

Functionality: When workflow reaches to the Publisher after being reviewed by Reviewer, he/she should be able to set a future Publishing date for the Activation of the Page.

We tried with using Dialog Participant step in the workflow model. We provided a date picker in the dialog of the same. And then after the dialog participant step, we are using the steps as they are in the existing "Scheduled_Activation" workflow. i.e "Waiting for activation" Participant step with "AbsoluteTimeAutoAdvancer" Timeout handler. And process step with "Activate Page" process. 

But we are facing the issue here that the page is not getting published at the date that is provided in the datepicker dialog. The absoluteTime property is also not getting set in the metadata node of the workflow.

Kindly suggest.

You can configure replication agent to do this. 

Please try the following options.
Use On/Off trigger option in replication agent. I've not used it in my project. This is the documentation.
Also, this link tells you asset expiration works. This works in the same principal of On/off trigger. So this might help your use case.

Please revert if my response didn't help or mark answered if it helped!

Please have a look at this community article:- http://adobeaemclub.com/scheduled-activation-workflows/

// Scheduled activation with workflows. Activation of a page at a scheduled date/time is available through “Activate Later”
