Scheduler

The Scheduler feature gives Store Admins the ability to schedule content on their website to be published and unpublished at specified dates in the future. This will be particularly useful for events and blog posts as they can be created in advance but scheduled to be published on a later date.

The Quick Note field provides Store and Order administrators a field in which notes may be added to an order and displayed on the Order Administration page (Store > Orders).
