Currently when using a date timer and the date has passed, it's possible to either:
Both of which I wouldn't necessarily want. Imagine the following Campaign Automation:
In particular, the "Run between dates" timer would be used to invite people to a webinar between certain dates. After those dates, the webinar is irrelevant, but the rest of the information is still relevant. This would be a problem if you have people who're added at a later date.
In this case, I don't want the participant to stop when the dates have passed, because the information following is still relevant. I also don't want them to proceed to the next step, because that would cause them to receive an invite for a webinar in the past. Instead, I'd like to have them proceed to the "Wait a few days" timer.
This could be solved with a third option such as "Proceed immediately, but skip next step", but perhaps something more flexible would be preferable, such as using a decision node (or possibly a positive and negative route):
