Start an automation on a specific date

How can I use Automations to trigger an email campaign on exactly December 13, 2023 for everyone who has submitted a form?

Wix Studio

What are you trying to achieve:
I’d like to use Automations to send an email camaign to everyone who has submitted a certain form. The campaign should start on December 13, 2023 and end on December 25, 2023. People may have submitted the form at any time before then.

What have you already tried:
I have set up an Automation that sends 12 daily emails after a form is submitted, but it triggers as soon as the form is submitted. When I select “Add delay” between the form submission and the first email I can only choose options relative to the trigger, such as “1 day”, “1 months”, etc. I would like to be able to select “On December 13, 2023” instead.

Additional information:

I eventually decided to use the Wix scheduler and code the email campaign by hand. That’s doable, but it was a lot of work for what seems to be one small missing feature in Automations. I’d love to know if there’s a way to do it with just Automations.

jobs.config file in the backend?

Dates as a whole need to be added to emails. Birth Dates, Custom Set Dates, Holidays, Dates based on conditions…etc

Yep. I haven’t released anything yet but so far it seems reliable.
