make lens work in the future

  • As far as i know, there's no feature added to do this for you automatically,

    However, you can put "do not promote" on

    a week before your event, turn it off :D

    Or, you can write a script to make images, text etc visible at a specific date.

    The script will check if the date is between a date, if it is, make things visible, if not hide the stuff.


    Let me know if you need help with anything else.

  • Many thanks for your quick and very clear answer. I have one more concern, if I use the "do not promote" I am afraid that the Snap code will be deleted after sometime, because when unlocking the lense for testing, it says for 48 hours.

  • Hey,

    i wrote the first part wrong,

    I meant, you can turn on "do not promote" when you're not using it

    then week before or when you want people to see it, turn "do not promote" off so it's visible again

    For the 48 hours part, here you got a answer for that

  • Hi Alruwaili Omar, 

    Don't worry about your Lens being deleted. Once you create it and it is approved, it stays active for a year. When the year is over, you can resubmit the Lens. 

    In the meantime, turning your Lenses to "Do Not Promote" just means your Lens isn't Live. It does not get deleted if you make it inactive. But as soon as you turn it on, it is automatically public. This way, you don't have you wait for any changes.
