    Is there a way to send a JotForm auto-responder on a certain day?

    Asked by LearnButeyko on February 11, 2014 at 04:29 AM

    I am currently using JotForms to collect bookings for webinars - see http://learnbuteykoonline.com/?p=2022 for an example - but I have a problem.

    I want to be able to send an autoresponder to those who signed up right before the event starts.

    Currently I send an autoresponder when someone books their place for an event, giving them all the information they need to join the online webinar, but I want to be able to send one more autoresponder reminding them that the event is going to start at a specific time.

    As far as I know there is no way to do this. I know I can make more than one autoresponder and that I can make a specific autoresponder send based on a specific condition, but I can't send an autoresponder at a specific time.

    Any ideas, or can this be put in as a feature request?

    Hello LearnButeyko,

    Unfortunately, we do not have such feature where you can schedule the auto-responder to trigger on a specific date/time.

    What can be done is that you can integrate your form with MailChimp which will collect all the email address once the form is submitted. You can use MailChimp feature to create auto-responders or "Automated one-to-one emails" to achieve your requirement.

    Feature request ticket on this requirement is already created and sent to our back end team. I am adding you to the list. We will get back to you if there are any decision taken on this feature request.

    Thank you!

    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.


    Also, you can select custom certain date on the dropdown menu!



    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!
