Yes, the feature to schedule blogs in advance is working most of the time. The majority of my blogs are scheduled in advance. My re-blogs are now scheduled until mid-January.

So, write your holiday blogs now and get them scheduled.

There is something wonky happening with the clock and time zones in there, we'll see what's going on.  Scheduled posts are still being published, they just might go out a couple hours before or after what you were expecting.

actually, I take this back Silvia Dukes PA, REALTOR I forgot about the 3 hr time difference.  I thought I posted it to 7am my time, but it's 7am PST which means 10am here. 

I just tried to reschedule for 5am or even 6am but it wouldn't let me do it.  It kept giving me a stupid message saying it had to be after 4:50am.  Hmmm. Last time I checked 5am and 6am are after 4:50am.  So now I need to wait another 2 hrs for it to post.

Yes, it appears to be working now. In fact, just a few mins ago I scheduled one. The only odd thing is that you get the pts for it when you "schedule" it (vs. when it is posted).  For some where they may be scheduling a whole bunch at for while they will be away, this may potentially reduce pts (if over 10 for the week).

Silvia Dukes PA, REALTOR - The scheduling feature was working fine until the changes last night. The system appears to be going through incremental changes without the proper testing. Heads would roll for this in some organizations. This, of course, is my observation from a very limited perspective. I do not have a clue as to how the system is managed.

Gabe Sanders - Scheduling in advance will not do any good if this feature fails. Today's experience is making me wonder if now is a good time to focus on other things.

I have to disagree with Kris Neese .

Re-blogs that were scheduled to be posted over eight hours ago have not been posted. And, I want to be able to control the times when they are published. The assumption that we will be happy if they are posted a few hours late is not acceptable. If you assume that I am not a happy camper, you are correct.

I have to withdraw my previous answer. The feature to schedule blogs and re-blogs is not working again this morning. I suppose we just have to accept the reality that the system is not reliable.

Roy Kelley thank you! Sounds like you are very organized and way ahead in your scheduling!

Debbie Gartner  good point (pun intended...). I've been wary using this feature because of the issues and wasn't aware if whether they had been resolved.  Thank you!

I take this back.  It's no longer working correctly again.  It posted, and I got points, but it's not in the blog roll.

Kris Neese Kerrie La Guardia not sure if you are aware of this.

Silvia,

We were in Florida the week before last, and I posted all our posts prior to leaving CA.  They all appeared perfectly on CA time, which is what I had scheduled them for...No complaints here.  A

Roy Kelley Seems like I opened a can of worms!  :-)

Gabe Sanders I agree with you on that one!  I guess we could learn from Roy's organizational skills.  I'm lucky if I get a couple of posts in draft mode ahead of time!

Thank you Kris Neese Debbie Gartner and Roy Kelley for your answers to my question.  I really was hoping to be able to use this feature again (after a long time) but I guess, it'll have to wait a little longer!
