I am using the Availability Scheduler and the plugin thinks this date is in the past (maybe February 16th 2017?) and immediately reverts published products back to draft status. The same issue post by MAMeingast
I’ve the last version (downloaded today)
The issue that experienced MAMeingast was due 3rd party plugin interference. In the specific he was using the WooCommerce Germanized that redefined the datepicker date format used by the expiration date input (in is case the default dd/mm/yyyy was overriden by the d. MM yy format).
Due to this interference, the date format submitted is not properly recognized by the Scheduler plugin putting the product as expired.
To avoid this kind of situation, manually input the expiration date using this fomat dd/mm/yyyy. Do a test an report me if this was your case.
Ok, thanks. I changed the date format in the wp options, and it works.
Glad to hear that
If you have enjoyed my support and/or my plugin please also consider to leave the 5 stars, I would really rally appreciate it! (to leave a rating: go to your profile then click on “downloads” and from there you can rate your purchases).
Does this plugin allow to set a specific date, say 3 months in the future, for a product to come off the site and change to draft? Or is it only days of the week and times of the day?
My products are usually available for either a few weeks or months and then have to be removed, but keeping up with a lot will be difficult. Need to automate them to come down.
yes you can set an exipiring date: https://www.dropbox.com/s/q0mqo9ynhgv3arc/wcas_expiring.jpg?dl=0
In this way the product will be setted draft after that date has past.
Thanks for both replies! Since I will just be needing something that pulls a product down at a specific future date and time, do you think this is the better option, or is the “WordPress Posts & WooCommerce Products Scheduler” better for this? I will not need this for posts, only products.
If you need just to remove a product in a specific date, I would suggest to use the WooCommerce Availability Scheduler. It is easier to use and cheaper
The WordPress Posts & WooCommerce Products Scheduler would be better if you need repeatedly to publish/unpublish your products, but this is not your case so I would not suggest to use this one
Ok wonderful, thank you for all the help!!
If you wil decide to purcase and you will enjoy the plugin or have appreciated my support service, please consider to leave the 5 stars,
I would really really appreciate!

Have a nice day!
I’ve had this issue from day one. Whenever I set an Expiring date the product status is changed to draft, although the date is in the future. Why is that?
We really want to use the plugin, but it’s not possible as we cannot publish products when it’s active.
which plugin version are you running? can you try updating to the latest 6.0 version you can download from CodeCanyon? It should fix your issue.
It may also be caused by 3rd party plugin interferences. It may happen that some of them redefine the datepicker date format (in the product page) used by the expiration date input (for example the default dd/mm/yyyy is overriden by the d. MM yy format).
Due to this interference, the date format submitted is not properly recognized by the Scheduler plugin putting the product as expired.
To avoid this kind of situation, try to manually input the expiration date using this fomat dd/mm/yyyy.
For further support please renew your support license.
I do have the latest 6.0 version and it still will not work. Maybe it’s a 3rd party plugin interference, but I have tried disabling all plugins and the issue remains.
I have renewed my support license and hope you can help me sort this out.
Sorry unfortunately I still see your license as expired: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/188630/support/wcas_expired.jpg
Please renew it and once done, send me via private message (click on my name then use the low-right box) a full admin access to your site. In this way I can do some live debug to try to figure out if possible to see what’s wrong in your installation.
You are naturally right. I deposited funds, but never renewed the license. My bad, I’m sorry! Now all is ok and I’ve sent you a private message.
Thank you, got it. I’ll do some test and I’ll let you know by replying to it.
I want to know if its compatible with this plugin https://codecanyon.net/item/foodify-restaurant-food-menu-for-woocommerce/11493327?s_rank=2 , I want to test your plugin before purchasing , if its possible please send it to me
The plugin hasn’t any specific support for that plugin and its features and It hasn’t any demo version that I can provide for testing.
Need to know if this plugin can make the schedule for the time price sale too not only to display the products??
The plugin only manages the product visibility it doesn’t alter the item price.
If you are interested also in price change according to time periods, you can give a look to this other plugin of mine: WooCommerce Pricing!
Great plugin so far, doing just what i needed. But im having trouble displaying the messages i put in from the backend. it isnt showing on the frontend shop page or product page. the countdown time isnt showing on the shop page as well. would you be able to have a look for me. cheers!
For what concers the shop and product messages, could be due do the fact the theme is not triggering all the needed woocommerce actions while rendering the pages, so the plugin is not properly able to inject the messages. It could also be due to a CSS interference.
If you send me a private message (click on my name then use the low-right box) with an admin access, I can try to analyze those pages with my tools try to figure out whats wrong in your installation.
Meanwhile try to update the plugin to the latest 6.1 version and try also to disable one by one your 3rd party plugin until you find the one that is interfering.
Hi! Just to be sure before I buy this: This plugin allows me to create products and show/hide them on the store (catalogue and search) based on the availability date, right?
Also, does this product works with all kinds of standard Woocommerce products?
Thanks! Your plugin suggestion is actually more proper due to future possibilities…
hello, i just buy your plugin and when I activate it a second “add to cart” button appears
I read in the comments that someone else had the same problem.
have you find a solutions?
I use edukado theme
suppongo tu sia italiano, quindi ti rispondo direttamente in italiano
Forse ho una nuova versione del plugin che dovrebbe risolvere questa issue. Il problema nasce dal fatto che alcuni tempi non usano propriamente alcune action di WooCommerce. Comunque sia questa nuova versione risolvere.
Mandami un messaggio privato (clicca sul mio nome e quindi usa il box in basso a destra) con il tuo indirizzo email. Ti rispondero inviandoti la nuova version del plugin!
hi, i am interested in this plugin, but i have few presale questions; (i) i need to display one specific deal item on specific days of the week and that item should not be displayed on any other days of the week. (ii) will it allow me to exclude from the basket coupon discount? or what would happen if customer adds one daily offer and one regular item to the basket? thanks
hi, how can i configure this item to work just the way it was in your demo page.
Thank you for the link. i am new to this app. i notice when i select Monday and under Purchase period, i select “disable for this day” and save. i still notice i can not do the same for Tuesdays.
To configure day availability you have to click on each day tab, then configure the availability/unavailability and then save. So in this case, after configuring Monday, click on the Tuesday tab and configure in the same way.
I’ve installed your plugin, but it hides the add-to-cart-buttons on all the single product pages. I’ve tried multiple themes, it even happens on your demo page (http://www.codecanyon.eu/wcas/product/course1/)
I’m running the latest version of Woocommerce.
Thank you for reporting the issue. I’ve fixed. The update will be available to download in 4 – 5 days (CodeCanyon approval system takes awhile to approve new updates), However if you send me a private message (click on my name then use the low-right box) reporting your email I can send you the update!
I tried to use the plugin and I couldn’t get it to work. It just wouldn’t save the settings like it was supposed to. It wouldn’t save in the individual product area or the bulk editor.
I found out it’s conflicting with a different plugin I have so I can’t use it afterall.
Can I please get a refund?
usually save issue are related to a low PHP max input vars. To check go to the WooCommerce -> System status menu. It has to be above 6000. If lower, please edit your php.ini and set the max_input_vars to at least 6000.
it seems that the plugin only works with simple products or how can I schedule only one of the variations from a variable product eg. select only one product by SKU?
Thanks for your help!
the plugin hasn’t support for specific variation. As you can see from the demo site and reported in the description page, it allows only to set availability for “master” products.
I have purchased the plugin with the extended license. I have a site where I manage different subdomains I want to activate your plugin .. on different subdomains but I can not!
How can I fix the problem?
Ciao, suppongo tu sia italiano
Stai usando quindi un installazione multipress? Teoricamente la licenza ti consentirebbe di utilizzare il plugin in un solo dominio. Comunque ho appena rilasciato una nuova versione che estende la compatibilità anche a multipress. Sarà disponibile tra 4 – 5 giorni al downlaod (CodeCanyon impiega un po a pubblicare gli aggiornamenti). Comunque se mi mandi un messaggio privato (clicca sul mio nome e utilizza il box in basso a drestra) con la tua tua email, ti invierò direttamente l’update!
ho appena acquistato il plugin, sono riuscito a impostare una data di scadenza per l’acquisto di un prodotto, ma sfortunatamente non si visualizza la barra del countdown e lo shortcode [was_expiring_datetime] non mi stampa il valore della data ma il testo dello shortcode, puoi aiutarmi per favore?
per quanto riguarda il countdown devi assicurarti di aver abilitato le le opzioni Use countdown to start time e/o Use countdown to end time per i giorni in cui vuoi che vengano visualizzati.
Per quanto riguarda lo shortcode, assicurati che il l’area di testo in cui lo stai incollando supporti la renderizzazione di shortcode. In caso positivo eventualmente prova ad incollare il teto utilizzando la modalita “text” oppure prova a scriverlo manualmente utilizzando la modalita “visual”: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/188630/support/wcas_text.jpg .
Per ulteriore assistenza, dovresti utilizzare l’account che usato per acquistare il plugin (su questo che hai appena utilizzato purtroppo non vedo associato nessuna licenza).
Hi Vanquish, I’ve tried to set up a new product on the demo site with a countdown display but I didn’t get it to work properly, or at least as I thought it would be shown. http://www.codecanyon.eu/wcas/product/myprod/ Did I get something wrong? Regards. Joao
I see in the product configuration that no availability was configured. To display the countdown, you have to configure the availability for each day of the week and then enable the countdown. See as example the availability I’ve configured for Friday and Saturday. Once done as you can see from the following screenshot: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/188630/support/wcas_availability.jpg
the timer is properly showed.
Ok, I get it now, but IMHO the option Throughout the Day leads the user (ate lead me ) to the wrong conclusion that it will do the job for all day. A feature request would have just an option switch/control to activate it to all days on every hour until the deadline. Regards.
hiii, purchased product ef471984-dbde-4b25-a97b-b3767f715fba .
Looking for customization. Need an option to make the product unavailable between tow date ranges eg between oct 1, 2017 to Oct 13, 2017.
Since our products are based on date ranges need an option where we can custom set the availablity between two specific date ranges
I hope you are doing well.
Thanks for the plugin, I need your support somewhere. I am facing an issue that is, I have bulk scheduled a category for specific date/day and the countdown is successfully showing in product details page but it is not showing on the category or shop page. It should be like your demo example but it isn’t working, I don’t know why.
Please help me in this regards.
This is usually due to the fact that your theme most likely is not properly using the needed woocommerce actions while rendering the shop page items. In this way the plugin is not able to hook itself injecting the timer info.
If you send me a private message (click on my name then use the low-right box) with a full admin access to your site, I can analyze it with my tools. However if the issue is related to a theme issue, I cannot fix it in any way.
Thanks for the message, I have sent you the details using that profile form, but please at least tell me what is the problem after checking, is it related to the theme or plugin.
thank you, got it. I’ll let you know as soon as possible.
Please can you tell me here what is the problem and why it isn’t working.
I didn’t get any email from you. At least tell me what is the issue and can you help or not.
it happens that the reply email goes to the spam folder. However here what I answered:
thank you for the access. It seems to be an issue related to the theme. I’ve performed some tests using the AceIDE plugin, and the problem is related to the fact that your theme is no triggering the woocommerce_loop_add_to_cart_link action while rendering the product thumbs on shop page. In this way my plugin is not able to hook and then inject the shop messages, countdowns, manage the add to cart buttons, etc.
You should then consider switching theme (100% WooCommerce compliant) or fix the one you are actually using in order.
Thank you so much.
as you can read from the plugin description page, it works only for shop and products pages.
However maybe I can extend the compability to the category page too. If you send me a private message (click on my name then use the low-right box) reporting your email I can send you the new 6.7 version to test that should work on category page too.
Hi, thank you so much.
I have checked your demo too and the timer is showing in your demo in category page: http://www.codecanyon.eu/wcas/product-category/category-1/
I have sent you the email including my email, please check it if you get it or not.
Yes beacause I’ve updeated the plugin with the latest version I’ve sent to you. Check your email inbox!
Thank you so much. God Bless you. You really helped me a lot.

I want to display the before and after product availability messages on a page I’ve created to display the products which is separate from the shop page. Is this possible, and if so, how would I do it?
$meta = WAS_PostAddon::get_post_meta($post->ID);
$messages = $was_post_remover->AS_get_day_messages($meta);
Installed the most recent version and it appears to be working from the individual product page however, our site uses a single page with item lightboxes to display individual items. The issue is on the lightboxes, the add to cart button still appears and when clicked, shows the “added to cart successfully” statement while it does not actually add the item to the cart.
the plugin only supports standard woocommerce shop and product pages. It hasn’t support for any extra theme features like item displayed in lightboxes. This is because it when themes are implementing those custom display methods, are not triggering the needed woocommerce actions to render the add to cart buttons, so the plugin cannot hook and manage the button display.
However if an item is unavailable, even if added to cart, the plugin checks if actually it can be bought and eventually denies the item to be bought.
