It would be great to allow for an offset from a date in the case of an event.

if I add an event date, then I could give the option to publish 7, 14, 21, 30 days before the event for example.

Hi,
Nice idea. However, to calculate the scheduled date we would need to link the scheduler field(s) to other date fields in your content type. That would require quite a bit of work, as it would need extra admin options to specify what fields to link to, what format, and what offset, with defaults and probably an override in the scheduler section of the node form. Not saying it can't be done, but it is not a quick enhancement.

hmmmm... maybe code can be borrowed/modifed from registration_date module

This can now be achieved using Schedulers new integration with the Rules - see module #773510: Integration with Rules module

You can build a rule which activates when saving a node, to a read your cck field and set the publish-on date to the required offset.
