    When I'm using the Conditions Wizard, I would like to delay the email that is sent after the submission. I'd rather people not realize that the email is being sent to them automatically. Is there some way I can delay it 30 minutes or an hour?

    Thanks for your help!

    Hi,

    Unfortunately we do not have that feature right now. Our emails and notifications are sent, as much as possible, in an instant.

    But you could try using and creating a custom "Thank You" page to where you will direct your user to a .php file, from your php file you could make a custom mail() function together with a cron usage of the website or a delay() function to make a delay in response or set a specific time to send an email.

    You can check this guide to enable sending POST data, http://www.jotform.com/help/213-Send-POST-Data-From-JotForm-Using-PHP-in-Custom-Thank-You-Page.

    I'll make a sample workaround and post this here if I'm able to make it work.

    Thank you.
