I have installed the CMS Workflow module and noticed a link "Future State" at the bottom of the CMS screen.
Clicking on it opens a pop-up window with a two field form and a "go link (which does not do anything)

Am I missing something in my installation? What is this link supposed to do?

Thanks,
Lise

It's so you can jump forward in time. SilverStripe invented our own time travel so content authors can double check that post that needs to be published at 1am will show at 1am and not break embargo by displaying at 12.59am!
