Scheduled publish for PDF media


Sort of editorial question but seems I can't find the answer :)

Client is requesting existing functionality from 7.0 - Scheduled version publish for PDF files.


What I'm looking for is feature or solution - when editor upload new file version with the same name - EPiServer actually asks for options: Skip, Replace immediately, Create new draft. Latter could be scheduled for publishing.

Any ideas?


This is pretty urgent !! as customer has lot of new files to be uploaded and scheduled for publish..

I think it should be feature request!

But if this case is urgent you can:

  1. Patch client (MultipleFileUploadConfirmation.js, MultipleFileUpload.js) to:
    • Inject your customs action (Create New Draft, Schedule For Published, ...)
    • Inject your new controller
  2. Create by your self FileUploadController (FileUploadExController for instance). Change a little bit to get action from request, instead of:
var action = (hasValidationErrors || !hasPublishAccess) ? SaveAction.Save | SaveAction.SkipValidation : SaveAction.Publish;


You can find my evidence for this in here

We released a new feature in EPiServer.CMS.UI.Core 7.7.0 ( that made it possible to configure if media that is uploaded should be auto published (standard behaviour), if you untick that feature uploaded media will in draft.

You can find this new settings under Admin\System Settings\Editing

Thanks Magnus!

However - it's a good start but :) would be great if we could also specify publishing actions for each file while uploading as habu mentioned.

I agree that it would be a nice feature. I will submit a feature request for that.

But will 7.7.0 solve your customer’s immediate problems? It should be possible to upload all of them now and then schedule them for publish at a later date.

Yes - thanks. It's solving customer issue at the moment.
