How do I schedule the publication of an article?

On the date and time you choose, the article will be published automatically.
To control access to the article and ensure it's only visible to certain user groups, use the 'Group Segmentation' feature. Specify the particular group or groups that are permitted to access the article. Consequently, only the users within these designated groups will have the capability to view it.
How to create a new Event?
