After installing Revisionary, go to Settings > Revisionary and make sure the “Scheduled Revisions” box is checked.

To create a future revision, first edit a Post that has the “Published” status. This will only work with content that is already published.

Start by making some changes to your content. Then, in the right sidebar, find the “Publish” date:

Change this option to a date in the future. This is going to be when your scheduled revision goes live.

If you change the date successfully, the “Update” button will change to “Schedule Revision”.

You willl now see the message, “Your modification was saved as a Scheduled Revision.”

On the main “Posts” screen you’ll see both the current version and the future revision. The future revision will be marked as “(revision)” and as “Scheduled.

After the revision goes live, you will go back to seeing only one version of the post.

Do you want to get notified when the scheduled revisions go live? Go to Settings > Revisionary again. There is an option to email Editors and Administrators when the post goes live.
