    Scheduling & promoting a release


    We recommend scheduling your distribution release at least 1-month in advance from the release date.


    As delivery time can vary, we recommend allowing as much time as you can to submit your release and promote as needed.

         Example: Release date is August 31, 2021. Submit your completed release by July 31, 2021.
