Scheduled Changes

Adobe Commerce only. Learn more.

Category updates can be applied on schedule, and grouped with other content changes. You can create a new campaign based on scheduled changes to the category, or apply the changes to an existing campaign. To learn more, see Content Staging.

All scheduled updates are applied consecutively. This means that any entity can have only one scheduled update at one point of time. Any scheduled update is applied to all store views within its time frame. As a result, an entity cannot have different scheduled updates for different store views at the same time. All entity attribute values within all store views, which are not affected by the current scheduled update, are taken from the default values, and not from the previous scheduled update.

Scheduled Changes

Schedule an update to a category

  1. On the Admin sidebar, go to Catalog > Categories.

  2. In the category tree on the left, choose the category to be modified.

  3. In the Scheduled Changes box at the top of the page, click Schedule New Update.

  4. With the Save as a New Update option selected, set the basic parameters for the update:

    • For Update Name, enter a name for the new content staging campaign.

    • Enter a brief Description of the update and how it is to be used.

    • Use the Calendar () tool to choose the Start Date and End Date for the campaign.

Campaign Start Date and End Date must be defined by using the default Admin time zone, which is converted from each website local time zone. For example, if you have multiple websites in different time zones, but you want to start campaign based on a US time zone, you need to schedule separate update for each local time zone, and set Start Date and End Date in converted from each local website time zone to default Admin time zone.
