On the menu list, tap on "Charge Settings"
That will then show Go Times and you can tap on "View Schedule"
There is an "Add" button on that screen to add a go time.
You can specify a time and day(s) of the week plus select a temp for the cabin: off, 65F, 72F, or 85F
These are Go Times. The OP is not looking for Go Times help. Go Times only work when plugged in. Remote starting works all the time.

There seems no good reason the app cannot offer this. Aside from what would be very minor development costs, there would be no cogs increase.
You can do this with a Tesla. I don't think any other EV (or any other car period) offers that functionality. What we have from Ford with remote starting from the app is better than every other EV except a Tesla AFAIK. As others said, you can set the remote start settings to Auto (72 F) or to Last Settings. We usually use Last Settings and crank the HVAC to 76-78 F & put it on Auto fan/mode before shutting down the car. Then the car gets pretty warm from 15 minutes of remote starting.
You can also get 30 minutes of remote starting using your key fob by following the remote start sequence twice. The MFM app will show the countdown starting at 30 minutes until your remote start session times out. I have not discovered a way to get 30 minutes from the app, just 15 and then you can add another 15 once it shuts off. You are only allowed 2 remote start sessions in an hour. If you want more, you must turn the car on & back off to enable remote starting again.
