Document Publish/Unpublish on Specific Date not working in 8.2

  • Document Publish/Unpublish on Specific Date not working in 8.2
  • When adding a new document, choosing "More actions" > Publish/Unpublish on Specific Date and entering a date either in the past or in the future has no effect.  Clicking Publish and then viewing that document again the Publish date is always todays date and time.
  • Hello Spero,

    Please check what is the publication date displayed at the right side of the Edit Document properties?(See attached image Edit-document-properties.JPG) If the publication date displayed here is correct or not. 

    The Date showing in the Library Documents list is the LastModified value (Ref. Document-List-in-the-Library.JPG and Document-List-in-the-Library-LastModified-Settings.JPG for settings) which can be changed to PublicationDate from the advanced settings. 

    To change this go to Sitefinity Backend -> Administration->Settings->Advanced->ContentView->Controls->DocumentsBackend->Views->DocumentsBackendList-> View Modes ->Grid-> Columns ->Date

    In the list of the properties on the right-hand side of the screen change the ClientTemplate property value from:

    <span sys:if='!IsFolder'> (LastModified) ? LastModified.sitefinityLocaleFormat('dd MMM, yyyy hh:mm') : '-' </span>


    To:

    <span sys:if='!IsFolder'> (PublicationDate) ? PublicationDate.sitefinityLocaleFormat('dd MMM, yyyy hh:mm') : '-' </span>
