After installing and activating the plugin you can use the shortcode [schedule].

You have to pass at least one parameter from the scheduled or expired.
[schedule on=’2014-12-01′ at=”10:01″ expon=’2014-12-01′ expat=”13:15″]
the content you want to hide here
The 4 parameters are “on”, “at”, “expon” and “expat”.
“on” accepts a date, until that date is arrived the content will be hidden.
“at” accepts a time. Time has to be set in 24hrs format. (date should be yy-mm-dd if you only pass time)
“expon” accepts a date, the content will disappear from the page on this date.
“expat” accepts a time. Time has to be set in 24hrs format. (date should be yy-mm-dd if you only pass time)
