    This would really professionalize the platform and allow us more autonomy to dream up the next Big Idea!

    Great Idea. This feature is key to any marketing campaign. Without this feature store fronts require 24 hour attention which is nearly impossible. Any store that uses any form of marketing/promotion needs to be able to coordinate their efforts automatically.

    HollyR & brandon - Being able to schedule all the elements will improve everyone's experience with Americommerce and professionalize storefronts. Messages in Imagery and discounts will always be coordinated improving convrsion rates! The greatest effect from this the ability to work ahead and have time to concentrate on creating the next"BIG" promotion or marketing campaign or improve site features and design elements or even have time to improve customer service or other procedures. BUT...as it stands, none of it is possible. Due to real time implementation the system requires constant attention. I really hope this feature gets picked up!

    We already have the DATEBETWEEN conditional mergecode that can give you somewhat close functionality over displaying elements/snapins on your pages ##IF[DATEBETWEEN=12/7/2010 AND 12/8/2010]## Put whatever you want here. ##ENDIF## This would allow you to only display certain content (which can be html, including mergecodes, snap-in mergecodes, etc) between the 2 dates.

    @Ryan Olson Although that ability exists it is very intensive and requires a lot of upkeep. Not to mention it does not allow for precise timing. For many sotres being able to control the time of day a sale, promotion, or element is visible is very imp

    Great idea. I do the bulk of my email marketing in January...everything get's planned, written and scheduled for delivery. Having to remember to go turn on the discounts is a problem.

    @Bryan Casey Bryan we entirely agree. Any added automation enhances any system. Thanks for your support.

    Having this feature will make managing discount methods a lot easier. It is very time consuming to manage them without the ability to categorize, sort or filter. I think this is really required in a multi store platform like americommerce.

    This would be a huge time-saver for any shop. I'd love to be able to schedule a start and stop for sale pricing on individual products, categories of products, sitewide banners/ads, etc.
