How to modify release time of specific editions

2022-07-20 13:46:24 UTC

It is possible to change the release time of specific editions if you have the feature Hold & Release. This is ideal if you have editions where the deadline is prolonged because of important events like elections or sports games or if you have content that mustn't go live before a specific time.

You will see the option in the right hand side in the "Processing" tab:


First you click on "Select Date" and choose the date you want to change the release time for - remember to press "OK". Otherwise you will only get the option for today's edition. It looks like this:


Then you click "Modify Release Time" and get the following window:


In the "Issues" option you choose the paper you want to edit the release time for. If you have chosen your main account, you may see several options, so make sure you choose the correct title.
In the example above, we want to change the release time of the paper of the 1 November, and because the time of writing this guide was 29 October, that comes up as an option. Typically you will only want to change the time, not the date, so make sure that you choose the correct date. Remember, that if you have the feature Early Release, your release time for the edition for 1 November will be 31 October.

When you have chosen the edition and edited the release time, it will look like this and you only need to press "Confirm".
