You might need to make your newsroom offline, due to expired content in the newsroom or simply because it is no longer needed anymore. Another case for example is when you have prepared a newsroom with content that is not yet ready for being available on internet
🚦Please use this feature with caution! An offline newsroom is not available on internet. For visitors this will look exactly the same as if the newsroom was deleted or never created — it just doesn't exist.
