Advanced Settings allows you to change your link shortening options, designate posts as Use Once, or set an expiration date on the post: 

Setting an Expiration Date

To set an expiration date on a post, click Advanced Settings, check the box next to Expire content at a specific date and time, and choose your date and time.

Posts with an expiration date will be part of the regular rotation of posts for that category until the expiration date passes.  Then the post will be retired and grayed out in the Library.**

Posts with multiple variations will be expired at the set time, even if unpublished variations remain.  Whether all variations publish before the expiration date depends on how many time slots are on your schedule and how much content is in that category for Edgar to rotate through.

To reactivate an expired post, edit the post to remove or change the expiration date.  

**Learn what it means if your post says it is only expired for X or Pinterest.

Setting a Post as Use Once

Click Advanced Settings, and check the box next to Use Once.  Edgar will publish that post one time only and then retire it.

Use Once is best not used in combination with variations. When a post has variations and Use Once is enabled, only one of the variations will be posted and then the post expired.

For more information on how Use Once works, see Use Once.
