⏰ Schedule now, publish later in Confluence

Hi Community,

I’m Lingyang Zhu, a frontend engineer on the Confluence Cloud team, and I’m excited to share a new enhancement to publishing Confluence pages and blogs!

You can now schedule your page or blog to publish on a specific date and time in the future!

Where to start?

Select Schedule publish from the More actions (•••) menu.


Then choose a date a time and select Schedule - that’s it!

You can then safely close the page or blog, and it will be published on the date and at the time you set.


💡Note: Pages and blogs can be scheduled whether it’s the first version of the content or the 100th edit to the page.

What happens after a page or blog is scheduled?

No worries if you have to make edits to a page or blog that is scheduled to publish later. The most recent version will be published when the scheduled publish time arrives.

You can also check or make modifications to the scheduled date and time by selecting the Scheduled button.


How do I know that a page or blog is scheduled?

Once schedule is set, a PUBLISH SCHEDULED tag will appear next to the page or blog in the Recent menu in the global navigation.


For a page that has been published before, the PUBLISH SCHEDULED tag will show up in page view above the page title, and when you hover over the tag, you can see the scheduled date and time.


This feature is currently still rolling out so if you don’t see it on your Confluence Cloud instance today, it should come to your site soon. We hope you enjoy it! Please leave any feedback below in the comments and stay tuned for more features coming soon!

@Lingyang Zhu a great news finally, I think it will be very useful to those people like me who have for example an editorial calendar to write technical articles.

This is great! However, when I try to select 12 PM or 12.30 PM, it is defaulting to 12 AM and 12.30 AM respectively. Is this a known issue?

Great news! But I can't seem to find any of my scheduled posts for editing/cancel schedule purposes. The only way to find is to use the browser history or go back to the previous link, which is quite troublesome.

Hi @Phong Vu - you can find the unpublished posts from top tool bar -> Recent -> Drafts, if they are not listed there you can search with title from the same place. 

Another way to access unpublished drafts is from Home (from the top tool bar) -> Drafts (from the left navigation).

Hope this is helpful!

Hi @Lingyang Zhu

Could you please let us know, when its planned to have this feature on Confluence Server and Data Center?

Hi @Lauras Susa - Unfortunately this feature is on Confluence Cloud, it won't be available in Confluence Server and Data Center.

I scheduled a Confluence page to be published at 4:30 AM. Now at 11:41 AM the page status is still set to PUBLISH SCHEDULED. What time zone does it follow?

Hi @Akash Kumar,

Schedule publish uses your computer timezone, the issue you are reporting should be unrelated to that.

The issue you are reporting is acknowledged and I'm sorry you had this experience, but thank you for sharing your feedback. We're looking into this and will update you when we have it fixed.

I also have an issue where pages are not publishing as scheduled. I tried on different times and no effect.

Is there any prerequisite for this to work, like active Confluence calendar? Issue reported from Cloud instance. 


For manual publishing, it would be great to have batch option, select multiple for publish now from Draft overview. 

Is there any way to generate a report of pages that are scheduled to be published?

This is helpful. Is there a way to schedule when documents in Confluence can be unpublished?

If you are having trouble with publishing on scheduled time, it might help to vote on this issue:

For me the scheduler is working with random delay of 9 -11 hours from scheduled time to actual publish time, which according to Atlassian support might be solved via the above feature.
