I am trying to create a flow[automation], where I create a Trigger where after 2 days an NEW Email is sent members of a specific list.
I know in the PAST Klaviyo only had the ability send emails based some event related to a website [i.e. landing page, product page etc].
About 6 months ago I was told Klaviyo might add the ability to send a New email for time based trigger.
Has this feature been added yet? Or is Klaviyo only designed to work with products like Shopify, Big Commerce or Wix?

My recommendation depends on your use-case. If you are looking to send an email after a specific date currently present on the user profile, (for example a user’s birthday) like Bobi mentioned, then using a date-triggered flow makes the most sense. This type of flow will trigger based on that date. For example, trigger email A, 2 days after birthday. However, if you’re looking to simply send an email 2 days after someone is added to your list, then adding a simple time delay between the list-trigger and the first flow email makes the most sense. This solution would use a list-triggered flow.
It sounds like you may also be looking to target existing people on a list every 2 days, in this case your best bet is to create a segment, is in list X and was added in the last 2 days and send a campaign to that segment. Repeat sending to this segment every 2 days. Alternatively, to automate this process, you can create a list-triggered flow and continue to add emails to this flow with 2 day time delays between each email. For example, flow triggered off of list X, email 1 (2 day time delay), email 2 (2 day time delay), email 3 (2 day time delay) etc.
Thanks and have a great day.
