unpublish and delete news
I've had lots of requests to surface options to unpublish and delete news articles from the page itself. It is too complicated for most end users (and too far to go) to access site contents and delete a page from the site pages library.
In addition to this, it would also be useful to have schedule and expiry dates to give the user full control over publications.
My customer needs an unpublish button to draw back a news article to make some changes (without the need to delete the page). There should be a way to set an news article to draft again.

We also need this ability. If you have news relating to a specific date (ie an invitation to an event), the news item should be unpublished either by an expiry date or a manual act from the editor. We would prefer unpublishing as the editor in question would still be able to find the news item and re-use it for another news item. And in general, we prefer not to delete content from our Intranet but still want it clean and easy for our users.
