    Autoresponders are sent instantly after form submissions.

    Unfortunately, we do not have the option to set a time delay on autoresponder message.

    We are considering adding this feature since it is asked a lot. To help us understand your needs, can you tell us little bit about the purpose for you to request this?

    Do I need to go in and send each user an email confirmation that didn't receive one?

    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!

    There is a new developed feature about this. You can use a form date field to set the email date.

    Date fields in your form is listed in above mentioned Send Emails Later setting as such:

    1532690579Screen Shot 2018-07-27 at 14.2

    This makes email date dynamic. 

    Feel free to contact us if you have any further questions.
