Episode scheduling is available as part of the Professional, and Plus, ZenCast plans.

On the episode creation page, scroll down to the "Publication date and time" section and click the calendar icon:

You can then select the future date and time you'd like your episode to be published.

If no date is selected, or if a date in the past is selected, then the episode will be published immediately.

Although ZenCast will publish your episode at the date and time specified, there can be a delay until each podcast platform checks your Podcast's RSS feed and updates their libraries with your newly published episode.

ZenCast updates with newly published episodes immediately. Other platforms like Spotify, Apple Podcasts, etc will usually take a few minutes up to a few hours to update on their end. This is due to how often they scan your podcast for changes. 

If you see extended delays of more than a few hours feel free to reach out and we'll be happy to help.
