postponeTime not working

Hi, i need to send faxes via REST Fax API. I'm using a php script and when I run it everything works, however the fax is sent immediately even if i set the postponeTime parameter with the format indicated here

Hi Zek,
I am sorry for the confusion. When sending the postpone time value in a REST request, you will need to urlEncode the postpone time component of the URL.
When using a timezone that is earlier than GMT, which would require you to provide the '+' sign, you will need to convert the '+' to %2B for the REST API to identify it properly.

When reviewing your faxes, I saw that you were trying to send the fax with a postpone time for March 5th, 2017 at 15:52:01 GMT+1. The format of this is, as you wrote it,


. When you urlEncode this component, it will become



If you use this value, the fax will be postponed to the time and date requested.

We have also corrected the documentation to include a specification that the postpone time component should be urlEncoded.
