Automation Rules Based on Time of Day
We are going to have to use a fairly manual process to get around this right now. So it would be super helpful as a feature.
We have several different carriers with different cut-off times. Being able to set a batch of automation rules to run at specific times of day would enable us to automatically reallocate orders to the appropriate services after those cutoffs have passed.
UPS picks up at 6pm, once they've picked up, we need to change all remaining orders for the day to USPS (who picks up at 8pm) using a few pieces of logic based on how much they weigh and where they're going.
This feature will be very helpful. Impatiently waiting for this feature.
Proper complete automation is the mere need of every E-commerce business nowadays
I hope Shipstation implement this ASAP.

We need a time criteria as well to accommodate our workflow. In our case we are located so close to the UPS Customer Service center that we can bring 2 Day Air and Ground packages till 8:00 PM but we have to pay a premium. Our FedEx cutoff is 5:00 PM and cheaper. We are willing to pay that premium so our customers can get their package after 5:00 PM and it would be nice if Ship Station would add a Time Criteria in their Automation Rules.
