One of the most useful features in HubSpot Content Hub is Schedule Publish. If you're not familiar with it, this feature allows you to schedule a page to go live in the future. Whether you're working with new pages or updating existing ones, you can set a specific date and time for your content to be published.

 

How to use Schedule Publish

For new pages:

  1. In the page editor, click the arrow icon next to Publish.
    Publish button
  2. In the Publishing options pop-up, select the Schedule publish for later checkbox, set your preferred date and time, then click Schedule.

This feature isn't limited to pages; it’s also available for blog posts, following a similar process.

 

But did you know you can also schedule a live page to be unpublished? The Schedule Unpublish option allows you to set a future date for a page to be taken down, with the added benefit of setting a URL redirect. This way, visitors to the original page won’t encounter a 404 error; instead, they’ll be seamlessly redirected to a new page, ensuring you retain the traffic.

 

How to use Schedule Unpublish 

  1. In the page editor, click the arrow icon next to Publish.
    Publish button
  2. In the Publishing Options pop-up, select the Schedule publish tab, then select the Schedule unpublish checkbox. Set your preferred date and time and the new page that you want to redirect to, then click Update now.

By using these scheduling features, you can manage your content more efficiently and ensure a smooth experience. Scheduling your pages to publish or unpublish at specific times helps maintain a consistent online presence, which is crucial for time-sensitive promotions, seasonal updates, or aligning with marketing campaigns.

These publishing controls also help maintain SEO value and user experience by ensuring visitors are directed to relevant and up-to-date content. Make your content strategy more effective by incorporating the Schedule Publish and Schedule Unpublish controls into your workflow.
