Add Article Scheduling to PowerCMS2

I run a website for an organization with lots of meeting notices.

It's hard to keep up with weeding the old notices of past events, and sometimes I need to start displaying the notice for an event when I won't be around to post it, so I set up a php page to pull stories from the MySQL DB based on a WHERE tblStory.StartDate<Now() AND tblStory.EndDate>Now() query.

It's a great time saver - now I'm hoping Webassist could add this functionality to PowerCMS2.

When an authorized Admin added an article to a page there would be two optional Start Date and Stop Date fields (with date pickers) that could be used.

The story DB that holds the stories in PowerCMS would have Start Date and Stop Date fields for controlling when articles are displayed. Also an Article Level field, for controlling article display order.

A page with Developer Notes would include a looped query to pull and display all valid articles for today's date(). Article Level 1 articles appear first, followed by Article Level 2, etc.

Or pages could be set up without date awareness, and things would work the way they do now. It would just be a (powerful) option.
