Post Now: Clicking this will publish the dialog board post immediately.

With this new modal, Admins can select a publish date and time by clicking the calendar icon. A menu with calendar and time selector will appear for the Admin and Admins can set their desired schedule. 




The time zone that is applied to the scheduled time is based on the Scheduled Email Timezone configuration that has been set on the LMS via the Systems tab in the Admin tool. Information about the time zone is provided in the modal.
