schedule publications

We’ve been working on multiple new features and we think you’ll love Flipsnack even more once you give these new features a try. Just yesterday we announced the new full-screen reader URL, but we have more surprises on the way.

Today we made it possible for publishers to schedule a publishing date for their publications.

This feature is available with the Corporate and Elite pricing plans, and it only works from the new editor.

Save time with automated publishing

Scheduling comes in handy for many publishers and marketers. There are monthly/yearly magazines that must go live at a specific date. There are also catalogs or brochures that present seasonal offers which start at a specific date, so they should only go live when the promotion starts. In all these cases the publishing date is very important.

Up until now, Flipsnack publishers had to either wait until the release date to publish or save the magazine as a draft in their accounts until the release date. The second option implies a second visit to publish, which is a little inconvenient.

But things have changed, for the better.

You don’t have to set a reminder to publish the PDF at a later date. As soon as your new issue or catalog is ready, you can upload it to Flipsnack and set the desired publishing date. Your magazines will automatically publish on the due date. It’s an easy, time-saving and efficient way to automate publishing.

How do I schedule a publishing date?

It’s important to remember that the scheduling only works in the new editor.

Here are the steps you need to take to schedule a later publication date:

  1. Login (this will take you to “my collection”)
  2. Click “Try new editor
  3. Upload your magazine and wait for it to convert
  4. Click Publish in the top right
  5. Select a later date in the calendar. Click OK.
  6. Click Publish later.

What if I change my mind?

You can always cancel or edit the scheduled publishing date.

Find the flipbook in the collections page and roll your mouse over. You will see the option to change the scheduled date:

change date

Click on the date to open the calendar and select a different date. If you change your mind and decide that you want the publication to be published right away, select the current date. Your magazine will be published instantly.

We hope you find this useful. Let us know in comments what other features you’d like to see in Flipsnack.
