Do I still use a send time with the ‘send when data is available’ option?

Yes, still schedule your email or campaign for the earliest time you want it to send or export. It will start trying to run at that time and will check to make sure the data is updated before completing the send or export. If data is not updated, it will continually check and send/export as soon as the data is completely updated.

Can this option be used when sending immediately or only scheduling?

This option is only available for scheduled sends. These can be one-time scheduled sends or recurring schedules.
