SharePoint Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for SharePoint enthusiasts. It's 100% free, no registration required.

As opposed to a page just being published as soon as it's approved - I need to make the schedule (the setting of the start and expiry date) of the publishing mandatory. Can it be done?

If you're using SharePoint 2010 you can use List validation:

  • Make sure your Page layouts include "Scheduling Start Date"
  • Go to the Pages library
  • Select List settings in the Library tab of the Ribbon
  • Select Validation Settings
  • Enter a formular like =[Scheduling Start Date]>TODAY()
  • Enter an appropriate user message like "Page must be scheduled into the future"

As this probably needs to be done on multiple sites it could be a good idea to put it into a Feature which is included in/stapled onto the Site definition
