How to configure Content Reminders within the CMS

Content Reminders are a feature within the CMS that allows you to set a date and time to be reminded about a specific page. This is useful if you want to remember to update a particular page.

  1. Login to the CMS and go to the Content Tab.
  2. Find the page you wish to set the reminder for, and then click the blue alarm clock icon under the Edit column.
    The drop down to schedule is added
  3. Click a date on the calendar that corresponds with the day you wish to schedule publication. Successful selection should replace the “Choose a Date” text at the very bottom of the calendar to the date you selected.


  4. Select the time by clicking the drop-down menu for hour and selecting the desired hour, and then doing the same with minute increments (:00, :15, :30, or :45).
