Got a lot of emails scheduled to go out? Wondering whether a particular customer received their notification already? Our Delayed Notifications screen will show you all email notifications that are schedule to go out.

Need to cancel an outgoing delayed notification before it reaches your customer? No problem, the plugin will allow you to do that as well.

Delay a Notification Based Upon A Date Your Customers Choose

Perfect for Appointment Scheduling!

Perfect for massage therapists,  dentists, or any type of service provider that takes appointments and payments through Gravity Forms? Now you can let your customers choose a date and time on your form, and Gravity Forms Delayed Notifications can send their appointment reminder email any time before the date they chose. For example, if they booked you for next Wednesday, our plugin can send them a notification 2 days prior, utilizing the delay feature based upon the date field that you include in your form.

Super easy. Super effective!

Frequently asked questions

You need to install Gravity Forms first before you can use our plugin.

You can use any version of Gravity Forms.

As you may know, WordPress is built upon PHP, which does not have its own internal CRON function. In plain english, this means that scheduled activities in WordPress can only happen so long as there is enough consistent and constant traffic to your website so that the emails go out at the time they’re supposed to. However, imaging that you have a delayed notification for 2pm, but you don’t receive any site traffic between 1 and 3pm. This would result in your email being sent at 3pm instead of 2pm as scheduled. 

To ensure more precise sending, we recommend setting up a regular CRON job with your website host to repeat every 1 minute. This will narrow the sending of the delayed email to occur within 1 minute of the time it should be sent.

What Customers say

Solved a problem and saved time
Great plugin. Did it’s job as advertised and saved me a lot of hours of programming.
Easy setup saved me hours of work
Gravity Press made completing an HOA website project much easier. The plugin made it much easier to create users with appropiate memberships and permissions. I had what I thought was going to be one of the more time consuming parts of the project completed in minutes.
Very nice bridge between MemberPress and Gravity Forms. May main issue with the MemberPress checkout is the two page process. Gravity Press allows me to run checkout through Gravity Forms (with a single page register/checkout) flawlessly.
Enabled customization
I use a membership plugin and there forms aren't exactly designer friendly in fact there's no customization possible. With Gravity Press I was able to use a separate form to replace my membership form. Which ultimately allowed for design customization and the flexibility I needed. Without Gravity Press it wouldn't have made this possible. I'd happily purchase Gravity Press again!
Seamless and Effective
Excellent plugin, no issues, easy install and configuration. Highly recommended!
Exactly what I was looking for!
This plugin was exactly what I was looking for, I can now send my registration signups to MemberPress!

  • Works like a charm

    We used it for a prayer form that we have on our church website. 30 Minutes after the request, we send a "Thank you". That gives the entire request a more natural view, because if we'd send it immediately, the requester will know that we had no time to read through but. BUT – after 4 days, we send a second E-Mail, asking for how it goes with that prayer request. People feel much more involved and see that we care. And yes, we DO, and we still ask personally as well, but this makes it easier. Your plugin does a great job. 🙂
