Scheduled changes for categories

Adobe Commerce feature {width="20"} Exclusive feature only in Adobe Commerce (Learn more)

Category updates can be applied on schedule, and grouped with other content changes. You can create a campaign based on scheduled changes to the category, or apply the changes to an existing campaign. To learn more, see Content Staging.

NOTE
All scheduled updates are applied consecutively, which means that any entity can have only one scheduled update at one time. Any scheduled update is applied to all store views within its time frame. As a result, an entity cannot have multiple scheduled updates for different store views at the same time. All entity attribute values within all store views, which are not affected by the current scheduled update, are taken from the default values, and not from the previous scheduled update.

Schedule an update to a category

  1. On the Admin sidebar, go to Catalog > Categories.

  2. In the category tree on the left, choose the category to be modified.

  3. In the Scheduled Changes box at the top of the page, click Schedule New Update.

    Scheduled Changes {width="600" modal="regular"}

  4. With the Save as a New Update option selected, set the basic parameters for the update:

    • For Update Name, enter a name for the new content staging campaign.

    • Enter a brief Description of the update and how it is to be used.

    • Use the Calendar ( Calendar icon ) tool to choose the Start Date and End Date for the campaign.

    note important
    IMPORTANT
    Campaign Start Date and End Date must be defined by using the default Admin time zone, which is converted from the local time zone of each website. For example, with multiple websites in different time zones where you want to start a campaign based on a US time zone, you must schedule a separate update for each local time zone. You set the Start Date and End Date for each, which is converted from the local website time zone to the default Admin time zone.
