Enable scheduling of posts for the News Section
In Sharepoint Communication Sites -
Allow the option to schedule posts for the News Section.
Allow the option to change the published date for posts in the News Section (e.g. if you need to back-date something).
Allow the option to change the publishing user on News posts (e.g if you're publishing something on behalf of a team member, but want their name displayed, not yours)
This is currently rolling out to customers
News and modern pages both support listing an alternate author in the author by-line field already today.

This is badly needed :) Is a general roll-out expected soon?
Hi, when will the feature be rolled out to all tenants? The status is still at "Rolling out" from July.
I can see this has supposedly been rolled out in July but our tenancy does not the option to turn it on yet.
Is there any idea when it will be rolled out further?
The Roadmap has this (Feature ID 62892) listed as rolling out July 2020. Fingers crossed.

If you are still struggling with this you can use the instructions in the blog here to implement it yourself
Looking for the same feature - where is Microsoft on scheduled posts? This will be so helpful as the sole publisher for my entire company.

Hi, Any news on this? Seems like a pretty straight-forward feature...

Any update on this feature? It is an important function needed for the news section.

I was also looking into this feature earlier today and it would be great if it is added!
Any update please?
This feature would be very valuable, any updates on it?
Any updates on this? To see the full benefits of News, our communications team absolutely needs this feature.
Pretty desperate for this feature. My editorial team requires it and we are floundering without it.

Scheduling yes... but not only when the post is going to be published but also revoked (not deleted, and not unpublished so it doesn´t show up in search).
I know this is possible with columns together with the highlighted contect or better yet with flows, but you should really make this available without the need of developing your own solution.
Scheduled posting would be SO great - any updates?
It would also be great if you could add more than one author!
please keep me posted on progress
I need this feature ASAP.

Do we have SharePoint news scheduling feature in the Office 365 RoadMap? Can we get an ETA please?
