Content Scheduler
post_status, draft (5 posts)

    Does Content Scheduler only work on posts that have a post_status of publish? I have some placeholder draft posts that I wouldn't mind Content Scheduler to act on...

    Yes, right now it does narrow down to published posts.
    Hmm... interesting idea. Original scope was to take published items and do something with them at a certain time.

    Can you briefly describe your use case for Content Scheduler affecting drafts?

    I'm using Edit Flow and posts are never Published. Posts get assigned various statuses and there are instances where I'd like to have Content Scheduler notify me that a particular post has expired.

    I'm familiar with Edit Flow -- it's great!
    Do you need Content Scheduler to actually cause a post_status change?
    Or just notify you when post_status has changed (perhaps changed by some other means.)

    Notification on expiration (regardless of post_status) would be fine. I'd then go in and reschedule the post and set a new expiry. I don't need to change the post_status at all.
