Create a Product with a scheduled availability

Using the Admin API,  is there a way to schedule the online sales channel availability when the product is created.  I want to have a product available in the POS for a week before going online.  Is that possible?

Also, I have manually gone this, but don't see the scheduled time on the Product when I dump the data.  Where is that information held?

Hey @aajoslin,

There is not. Using the publishablePublish mutation, you can set the publishDate to a time in the future to schedule the resource to be published at that date. However:

  • This requires the write_publications access scope. This scope is currently available only to private apps installed on Shopify Plus stores.
  • Only online store channels support future publishing.
