Schedule change category multiple time (1 post)

    Hi.

    I am looking for a solution to my problem for a few days. Assume that I am writing a new post and assigning to category "category1". This is what I would like to do: after a certain time (or at a predetermined date), remove assignment to "category1" and add to "category2" and then on the next scheduled date remove post from "category2" and add to "category3".

    For example:

    January 1, 2020:
    I publish post "Happy New Year"
    I add it to category "Current greetings"
    I order/schedule to change the category:
    January 10, 2020:
    remove from category "Current greetings"
    add to category "Old greetings"
    March 21, 2020:
    add to category "Winter archive"

    January 10, 2020:
    WordPress automatically does the following:
    remove assignment to category "Current greetings"
    add to category "Old greetings"

    March 21, 2020:
    WordPress automatically does the following:
    add to category "Winter archive"

    WordPress automatic activities do not require any human intervention

    I know there is plugin Post Expirator, which allows you to change the category of the scheduled date, but only once. I need to schedule this at least two times.

    Could anybody direct me to solution of my problem? I have some experience with programming, but never in wordpress.

    I apologize for language mistakes and thank you for your help.
