Wait 1 day before scheduled time


I’m trying to create a reminder for my sales reps to call a prospect 1 day prior to a booked meeting, but I’m not sure how to set it up in n8n?

I assume I can edit the “time date” somehow with JSON nut not sure?

It looks like your topic is missing some important information. Could you provide the following if applicable.

  • n8n version:
  • Database (default: SQLite):
  • n8n EXECUTIONS_PROCESS setting (default: own, main):
  • Running n8n via (Docker, npm, n8n cloud, desktop app):
  • Operating system:

better use time difference node and run workflow on schedule

You can use the following expression to deduct 1 day from a given date:

{{ $json.body.timing.toDateTime().minus(1, 'day') }}

Here an example workflow:

Thank you for your reply!

I’m then getting this error:

And error code:
