Scheduled Actions

Introduction

Scheduled actions are included in iPages for when you need to make changes on your website but you can't be there to make them manually. You can schedule changes to your website at a certain date/time and the changes will be updated automatically at that time. This especially useful if you're going on holiday and want to keep your blogs consistent or if you want to have content appear on your website but only for a limited time.

How to use Scheduled Actions

Scheduled actions can be used on Pages, News/Blogs and on the Media Gallery.
