Hi Farron, since you want the campaign to only run at certain times of day, you will need to set up something similar to what Justin outlined. Currently there are no other native settings to allow you to only run triggered campaigns at certain times of the day without manually turning them on and off, which isn't scalable and leaves a lot of room for error.

What you need to do is to use wait step rules. When you have the flow for your triggered email drag a wait step in and then put in 10 minutes as the value, then click the little gear in the wait step window on the right and go to the must end on drop down. Here you can select Monday - friday or any of the other values. This should work as it will send out emails created between m-f immediately, bit those created off hours when the time frame opens up again.
The other thing you could try is instead of sending an email just add the name to a list and then send to the list every day at a certain time. When the email is sent remove all names from the list. Therefore, only new names receive the email every day.
Hi Jamie, the wait step "must end on" will work if you only want a response to be able to go Monday-Friday, but it won't take into the 7am to 3pm criteria that Farron also noted.
Unfortunately I don't think that your second solution works either, because it's the equivalent of exactly what she's trying to avoid, as she wants it to go out 10 minutes later unless it's outside of business hours.
