We use it to manage a digital publication with articles posted 3-5 times a week. This is a great tool for managing the calendar and ensuring content quality.
This plugin has been recently acquired and updated by PublishPress and is a fantastic utility for any WordPress blogger with lots of older content. It will allow you to schedule a revision and updated publication date for older posts you want to repurpose without the post going back into draft mode! Also, the publisher is very responsive with support and welcomes feedback on the product.
