How to preview and schedule a newsletter edition

Authoring is currently in an alpha testing stage, which means it is not fully stable and only available to a few users.

Once your newsletter edition is complete and ready to be scheduled, click on the Preview button on the right, then click on the Preview and schedule link, shown here:

In the window that opens, set the Include promotions toggle to ON to check if there are any promotions scheduled for the publication date you will choose and to automatically place them in your newsletter edition, or set the toggle to OFF to exclude any scheduled promotions from this edition. Then click on the box under Choose a date and time to open a calendar where you can choose your publication date.

You will see the number of promotions scheduled for this date as soon as you select a date, and only if Include promotions is set to ON.
