We have the requirement like some items need to be published on specific time automatically.All Items are in two versions English and Japanese.

I downloaded the sitecore schedule publish package from market place. SITECORE SCHEDULED PUBLISH

I installed this on a Sitecore 8.2 update 3 instance without any error. I set a publishing schedule on a single item. But getting error "no valid version",please see below screen:

  • Does the item has a version in both en and ja-JP? This error will tend to be shown if the language you specified does not have at least 1 version. Jun 30, 2017 at 18:29

Based on the code in the ScheduledPublish.dll, the reasons why you have this error is because

  1. One or more of your selected languages do not have at least a version.
  2. The item is either in Draft or Awaiting Approval workflow.

The code make use of the Sitecore.Data.Items.GetValidVersion to see if the item has a valid version. It checks the date, if the item has been approved and allow empty items.
