    I know how to set an autoresponse email for another day, but can we set a specific time to send? if so how can I access that.

    Hello,

    Sorry, but currently there is no option to directly setup a specific time to send the autoresponders similar to the option to send on a particular day as explained here: Utilizing-the-Send-Emails-Later-Function-of-the-Autoresponder-Emails 

    Let me escalate this to our back end team as a feature request. Please note that we will not be able to provide an ETA at the moment, but we will keep you posted on updates via this thread. 

    In the meantime, I would suggest the below workaround:

    1. Add a Time field in the form and set it to current time in the field properties. Hide this field in the form.

    2. Create a condition as shown below to send form after a certain time. Creating a conditional email will override the actual autoresponder email.
