    I have a form with a future date to implement something

    What kind of logic condition I must do that permit me receive an email on the day that I put the planned implementation date.
    Note: The logic is to receive an email on the day that was expected this implementation was insert in the form to know if it was actually made.

    It is possible to send the autoresponder email on a later date. In this way, you can remind the user who filled up the form via email. Here's a guide:

    1. Click the "Emails" button in the toolbar.

    2. Select the Auto-responder and then click the "Edit" button.

    3. Go to "Advanced" tab and set the "Send Emails Later" drop down option.

    Hope this helps. Thank you.

    I am not quite sure what time they will send when scheduled for a later date.  I assume some time very early morning EST.  I set up a couple tests to confirm the specific time, however, they will not trigger until tomorrow.  If you still need to know the specific time at that point, let us know and I will be happy to follow up.

    As of today, any scheduled emails will checked and sent hourly.  They were previously set up to send twice a day.  However, the scheduled emails were updated at the request of another user to be checked more frequently. 

    As for the picture issue, if you wouldn't mind creating a new thread for that issue letting us know which form you are having trouble with, we will be happy to have a look.
