Set up content expiration

2 min read

If you want to launch a time-limited campaign or present content that's relevant only for some time, it's useful to schedule automatic content expiration. You can schedule content items to get unpublished and archived at the right time the same way you can schedule them for publishing. This helps you to keep your content up-to-date.

You can only schedule items for unpublishing if they have a published version.
