Thank you very much, but what about sending at 12 am? What do u think about this formula DATETIMEVALUE(TEXT(TODAY()+3)+" "+'12:00:00')?

Hi Andrew,
You can use the formula DATETIMEVALUE(TEXT(TODAY()+5)+" "+'12:00:00') as you want to create the call reminder after 5 days.

(Whenever the system auto-generates a time value, it is created based on the GMT zone (Greenwich Meridian Time).  If you are based in the United States, this means that when a time value is created by the system without a specific time, it is set to 12:00:00AM GMT, which is 4-9 hours ahead of the US time zones!
Don’t worry, your users don’t have to deal with those 11 pm task reminder alerts from their phones anymore.
To compensate for this, you’ll need to pass a time in your formula or process, in GMT, before Salesforce converts it into a date/time.  How many hours ahead can be determined by using a handy time zone tool, like www.thetimezoneconverter.com (http://www.thetimezoneconverter.com.)
Once you know how many hours ahead or behind of GMT your time zone is (CDT – Central Daylight Time – is -5 GMT) you can add the inverse of that number to the time that you wish to have your reminder set.  So if you want a reminder set for 9:30 AM CDT, you would need to use (9.5+5=14.5) 14:30:00 as your time value (DATETIMEVALUE accepts a 24-hour time value, so you don’t need to worry about an AM/PM designation)).

Thanks & Regards.
