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.
Toggle overflow of Content which is moved off the Schedule Block. If you select On, point to the overflow (target) block in the drop-down list.
You can only select another Schedule Block as the 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.

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.
When you click a Schedule Block, a Timeline appears at the top of the screen.

To delete a Content item in a Schedule Block:
1. Select a piece of Content in the Schedule Block.
2. Click 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.
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.
