App request to set the temperature in the car to a certain setting at a specific time of day.

Has anyone requested to have the Tesla App set the temperature in the car to a certain setting at a specific time of day instead of Manually having to do it before you walk to the car. Like when you leave from work set the temperature to 70 degrees and also maybe be able to choose what days of the week, as well.

You may be able to do this with Scheduled Departure, set within the Charging screen in the Tesla vehicle (Scheduled Departure settings are not available through the Tesla app.) Normally you set Scheduled Departure to coincide with the time you leave home in the a.m. either Monday through Friday or every day. Currently you can only set one scheduled departure time. I believe you could set the scheduled departure time to be in the p.m. (You can set whether scheduled departure preconditioning happens even when the Tesla is not plugged in.)
