Scheduling a Hub to be Published?

    Hi all - its been a while since I've been on the forums.  I'd love to see a new feature that would allow us to schedule a hub to be published.   When editing a hub, the score tends to drop a bit, and I would love to be able to press publish, but allow it to continue "marinating" overnight or even for a day or more before going live.  I just hate publishing a hub with a score in the 50s... regardless of whether it climbs up subsequently.

    This would also be helpful for people that want to time a hub to be published close to a specific day or event.

    Thanks, Steph

      Actually, you can do this already. 

      Save your finished Hub as unpublished and then just watch what it does for the next 2-3 days.

      Then hit publish when it's up in the 60s or 70s.

    Steph what an awesome idea!  I have dozens of hubs finished but can't find time to remember to post them it would be perfect!

    That would be good for outside of the USA hubbers too, I always forget the time difference when publishing so I seem to miss the good traffic from the states.

    I would not be worried about the score of a hub in relation to publishing.

    The sooner you can publish, with an appropriate amount of content, the better.

    You can't get quality traffic to an unpublished hub. Search Engines can't index an unpublished hub.

    I am not so worried about the score marinating, so to speak, but I'd love to be able to predate a hub to post at a specific time other than right now. I like to finish mine in advance, and publish throughout the month, and it would sure save time from having to manually publish, especially as this morning it was slow on my end.
