Is it possible to delay for more than 5 minutes or schedule further executions?

Searching the forum, it seems like the answer is no, e.g.

At the moment I bounce stuff to Zapier when I need to e.g. schedule a 90 minute delay before sending an SMS after a cancellation of a Calendly event, or follow up the next day after a meeting.

Seems Make is limited to the Sleep module, though tying together 18 sleep modules to achieve a 90minute wait seems… excessive.

As for dynamically scheduling something like a one hour reminder before an event… I don’t see how this can be done in Make. For example, I get the calendly API event notifiying me when an invitee is created. From that, I take the date of the future Calendly event, subtract an hour, and send the data to Zapier to schedule the 1hr prior reminder. I don’t see that this can be done in Make at all.

If anything, it would be nice to get a confirmation that this is not (currently?) an option in Make.

If however, there is a way, then I am all ears and eyes. Thanks!

Welcome to the Make community!

You can have the first scenario schedule a cron job callback using apps like 0CodeKit that allows you to schedule a “callback” to a URL defined in a “Custom Webhook” trigger in another scenario at the exact time you want



You don’t have to use a data store as trigger module, this is just an example. You can use Google Sheets, Google Calendar, Calendly, etc.

Alternatively, if you are already using Airtable, you can use an Airtable formula and built-in automation, briefly mentioned here.
