Schedule Block allows you to make Content automatically appear on the page at a specified time.


Schedule Block is an element of a Landing Page which allows you to select Content items and plan (schedule) the times at which they will be displayed on the page.

The Schedule Block can be used in conjunction with the Timeline toolbar to plan the exact times at which each Content item is supposed to appear.

When new Content appears at the scheduled time, the Content displayed previously is moved down to make place for it. It is also possible to define the rules for overflow: when a Content item is moved down so far that it falls outside the Schedule Block, it can be moved to a different, predefined Overflow block.

Adding content to Schedule Block

Selecting content to display

To be able to schedule content you must first select a template for the block.

2. Navigate to the Content item you want to include and click Confirm selection.

The selected Content item appears at the front of the Schedule Block.

If adding new Content to the Schedule would move earlier Content off the block, a message box appears with a warning. Click Confirm to add the new Content item and remove the older one. If overflow is enabled, the Content removed will be placed in an Overflow block.

Deleting scheduled content

To delete a Schedule Block:

1. Select the Schedule Block.

2. Click Trash icon in its toolbar.

To delete a Content item in a Schedule Block:

1. Select a piece of Content in the Schedule Block.

2. Click Delete icon in its toolbar.

An Empty Slot message replaces the deleted Content item.

If you delete a Content item in a Schedule Block before the block has been published, it will be removed completely (it will not remain in the history). If you delete a Content item after the block has been published, it will be removed from the Schedule Block, but will be available in history by dragging the Timeline slider.

If you remove a Content item from a Schedule Block with overflow enabled, all other Content items, including those which have been pushed to a different block, will move backwards.

What next?

Once you have planned Content to appear in the Schedule Block, you can use the timeline to see what the page will look like at a given time.
