After you have completed your draft, it's time to publish. At its purest, the process of publishing content, pages, or assets is as simple as clicking Publish and selecting Immediately. If you’re making a quick update, or if you subscribe to the Essentials edition of Acoustic Content, this is all you'll need to do when publishing content and assets.
When you click Publish, there can be a slight delay during the publication process before your changes are visible on a website or app.
Publishing jobs are used to track the progress of any items that are in the process of being published. The Publishing at a glance widget on your hub's Overview page displays which publishing jobs are currently pending. The errors tab displays a list of publishing jobs that couldn’t be published for some reason. Plus you can also view a list of recently published jobs.
There are times when you don't want an update to go live immediately. If you’re subscribed to the Standard or Trial editions of Acoustic Content, you can use scheduled publishing to control when a set of updates is published. Scheduled publishing can be applied only to individual content items and assets in your content collection, not to website pages or landing pages.
Your hub manager is responsible for creating scheduled publishing routines and events using the Publishing section of the hub.
You create a publishing event when you want multiple changes to be published on the same date and time. This allows composers to select the next scheduled event when they publish their content and assets instead of publishing immediately.
A publishing routine is used to define a recurring set of publishing events; every day at 8 pm, or every Sunday at 4 am, or any routine that suits your business.
Instead of publishing immediately, composers can choose to select a publishing event or the next publishing routine, and their updates will be published alongside all the other updates attached to the same publishing schedule.
If an item has a pending status, it means that it has been queued for publishing, and will be published on the next scheduled publishing event or routine.
Plus, with scheduled publishing enabled, you can add further items to a publishing job you have created yourself so long as the job is either on hold or hasn't been published yet. Also, by clicking the publishing date, you can either place the publishing job on hold, choose a different publishing event or routine, or immediately publish the items in the publishing job.
Restoring a previously published version
Previously published versions are displayed in the history view of content items and assets. When you click Make current from one of the listed versions, a new draft is created, allowing you to edit and publish that version of the content item or asset.
