How to edit the publication timeline on your item

When creating an item on Figshare, it’s possible to edit the publication timeline - or history - that appears on the public record of your item.

To edit these points of time, click on ‘Edit timeline’ on the right side of the item creation screen.

From this page, you can edit the first online date and any other dates that may appear if your institution has Figshare for Institutions. You are unable to edit the posted date as this is system-generated. Once you’ve made any date amends, be sure to click on ‘Save changes’.
