Autonami allows you to set up delays in your emails and SMS campaigns if you do not want them to be triggered immediately.

It’s a great feature and you can use it when you’re creating a series or a sequence of emails. 

Here’s how you’ll be able to see it:

Select any event >> Choose ‘Send email’/’Send SMS’ as an action

When you click on the ‘Send email’/’Send SMS’ block, you’ll see the email/SMS panel on the right side.

On the email/SMS side panel,  you’ll find an option saying- “Perform this action immediately – Change”.

You’ll be able to set delays when you click on the ‘Change’ button.
