Schedule website/landing page updates without unpublishing the page

It would be great if we could have a way to schedule website/landing page updates without unpublishing the page until the time set to update/publish.

 

For example, currently when we publish a page, make changes, and then schedule a time for the changes to be updated/published, the page will be unpublished until the scheduled time. 

 

Ideally we should be able to make edits to a page, schedule the update/publish, publish the changes when the time comes, and keep the page live the whole time

We've also had this request come in from several clients, primarily by a credit union client who needs edits to go live at a very specific time. Would be a million times easier for us to do the work in advance and schedule the page to update at the exact requested time.

Us too...  We have various sales, promotions, etc. that we'd love to include on a page, but I hate having to wake up at midnight just to publish a page.....

 

Big up vote here!!!!!!

Thanks for posting: my company would love this feature as well!

 

WordPress plugins Revisionize and Revisionary have been available for years for WP users: it seems like this basic feature just combines existing version histories and scheduling functions. It would be a great improvement for anyone doing timed promotions, regular schedule changes, and much more, without the stress of having to click "publish" at an inconvenient time or day.

I agree, this update would be ideal for contests! Instead, I will be waking up at midnight to push my update through.

 I agree as well. Any time we push out product updates, I have to log in at midnight to publish all the pages where we've made changes.

Honestly, I'm quite surprised that a) this feature request doesn't have thousands of upvotes and b) that a year has passed since this important request was made!

 

I'm sure that most organizations have new details and documents to publish following quarterly announcements, partnerships, new technology developments, version releases, significant staff changes and other events that, simply, can't be announced on one channel or at a company-wide meeting and immediately updated on the website. Especially, if the folks responsible happen to be in a different time zone or possibly part of the very event.

 

C'mon now... can a platform that makes its raving fans wake up at midnight to just push a HubSpot button despite being able to put a complex newsletter dispatch or lead flow on autopilot, really be called a marketing automation platform? Let's fix this fast :-)

@SandeepT  LOL  I agree with you.  How had could this be????  Furthermore, since it's been a year, and not even a comment by Hubspot staff.  You have to assume that this will go nowhere....

Yes why isn't this a built in feature from Hubspot, I have dealt with many many CMS's before and they all have this ability to schedule changes without making the page go into an unpublished mode, I really hope this is a feature release soon.
