Scheduled Publish and Reminder Options

Among the efficiency-enhancing features in OmniUpdate are scheduling options. You can schedule a page to be published at a future date and time, within 15-minute intervals. 

After editing a page, instead of “publish now,” you can select “schedule.”

You will have the option of having the system send you an email notification when the page has been published. This email will include a link to the published page.

You can also schedule a reminder to update a page by clicking on the alarm clock icon next to the file name on the “Pages” screen.

You can use this feature to prompt yourself to update content if you reference timely information that will expire days, weeks or months from now. Now I can remind myself once a year to update President Wilson’s biography indicating the number of years he has served at Illinois Wesleyan.


Also, a “Stale Reminder” lets you send a message to review content if a page hasn’t been edited for a designated period of time. (This “clock” will be reset if an asset within the page is updated and published.)

Both types of reminders can be sent to yourself or all the users in a selected group.
