    Publishes only checked-in content items and site folders that meet the following criteria:

    • The items are marked for publish to the selected publishing targets.

    • The items have modifications since the most recent publish, or the items contain modified dependencies since the most recent publish.

    You can execute an incremental publish for content that is marked but unmodified. See Publishing Types for details.


    Publishes all items in the Site Tree and Assets Tree that are checked in and marked for publish, regardless of any changes to the content.

    We recommend running full publishes for large-scale updates and not running full publishes during peak business hours.
