Sending options: 1. Immediate 2. Schedule 3. Follow Up
Immediate: It is the default mode and sends messages immediately when clicking on send SMS button.
Schedule: This section allows you to schedule a message delivery time and date. Salesforce will set the default time zone so make sure you chose your preferred one by using the edit option.
Ex: Your default Time Zone setting is America/Santiago but, your customer Time zone is in India. In such a case, you will have to reset your time zone under the edit option or you can contact the salesforce admin to change your default Time Zone.
Follow Up: This Section allows you to follow up on a contact/lead… based on a particular field in the record and it sends messages until the field changes and the message is delivered to a future time and date. Salesforce will set the default time zone while sending messages. If you wish to change the time zone to your required time, you can change it by using the edit option.
