Say Goodbye to Late Night Releases With Essential Scheduling!

Introducing Essential Scheduling—Your Solution to Late Night Releases!

Essential Scheduling allows you to schedule your releases ahead of time. You can now do all the necessary rollout work, like making flag changes and getting approvals, long before the release. No more waiting until off-hours to move on to your next project.

It’s simple, makes sense, and user-friendly.

With this feature, you’ll be able to:

  • Choose when to release. You can schedule your changes up to 90 days in advance across multiple time zones. Once you’re done, you are free to move on to your next project without stress.
  • Reduce risk, get approvals ahead of time. Ask for a peer review long before your schedule changes go live. This will help ensure that another set of eyes have taken a look at your work and that nothing will break in production.

Essential Scheduling can also solve for even more sophisticated use cases like turning a flag “on” at a certain time and “off” at another.

Let’s say you want to display a maintenance banner on your site starting next Monday and ending on Friday (for roughly two weeks). To pull this off, you can use 3 flags together. One flag would be the main flag controlling the feature (e.g. maintenance_banner ). The other two flags would be used for scheduling (e.g. schedule_banner_on, schedule_baner_off ) with the main flag set up as a dependency. Thanks to Essential Scheduling, you can schedule the banner to turn on Monday and use the other flag to turn off the banner on Friday — pretty cool, right?

The main flag would need a specific targeting rule as shown in the image.

Essential Scheduling ultimately helps you get ahead of your releases, so you can move on to your next project and enjoy your nights/weekends again.

Essential Scheduling is now available to test during your free 30-day trial, as well as on our Teams (limitations apply), Business, and Enterprise tier plans.
