How does garage door scheduling work

I just bought and connected my MyQ gateway to Chamberlain garage door opener that I have had for years.  We occasionally leave the garage door open all night and I mainly bought the unit to have it close the door on a scheduled.  I scheduled the door to close at 10 pm.  Will this close the door if it is left open after 10 pm or will it just send a command to close the door at 10 pm?  I want the door to close if it is left open for more than 15 minutes after 10 pm, but I don't see this detailed and option in the App.

There is no scheduling open and close for the door only push notifications/email alerts when door is left open for variable times of minutes/hours.

You shouldn't be pulling your phone out while driving anyways. That's why many of us are asking for home it or Android auto or carplay so we don't have to use our phones while driving (dangerous and illegal in many places)

If the app is still connecting for like two minutes I would blame your phone or cell carrier for slow speeds as when I'm the passenger my LTE connection connects in a couple seconds

I shouldn't be pulling mine out, but when you pull yours out it connects in a few seconds.  Interesting!

The scheduling feature doesn't work at all so I wouldn't bother.

If you want you can schedule separate door close commands.  That way if someone leaves it open after 8pm it will still get close.
