Feature Request: Autoresponder with Time delay

    Asked on January 18, 2013 at 09:00 PM



    I would love a feature that would send an auto-responder email to someone who submits a form with a time delay. This way, I can make sure they get my special thanks email a week after then sign up.

    I have forwarded your request to our lvl2 team for a review. I'm sure they'll consider this request, though we can't provide any definite time for implementation due to the other long list features that are already on the priority list.

    Yes! This would be a great feature. We would like to customize a human like auto response.

    The only problem, it flyes out too fast.

    Please consider it.

    Thanks Guys.

    The gravity of the feature request has been acknowledged.

    Though - opening a separate feature request  works better in increasing the demand for the feature.

    We’ve implemented scheduled autoresponders! Now you can send your autoresponders to your submitters after selected time delay!


    In order to use that feature you can simply follow the instructions below:

    1. Open Emails Wizard on builder.

    2. Select autoresponder email that you want to delay its delivery time.

    3. Click on Advanced tab.

    4. Select schedule date on the dropdown menu in the Set Email Time section.



    Then, your responses will be sent after selected time delay for each submission.

    Hope this helps for you. If you have any questions about scheduled autoresponders, please let me know.


    Thank you for using JotForm!

    Are there any ways to cancel a specific postponed autoresponder from a specific submission without changing the rest?
    I would like to set them up as follow up emails but from time to time, no follow up is needed.
