When creating an Automation, I usually use a Trigger to schedule my jobs. (FME Flow Schedule)

But is it possible to create an APP whereby the user gets to choose the Date / Time to run it instead of an instant submission of the job? (User Param maybe)

Yes, you can create a schedule using an API call. So the Flow App runs a workspace that takes the Date / Time input from the user and then fires off the API call to schedule another workspace at that specific moment.

Can you elaborate more please?

I assume regarding the API you are referring to the FME Rest API, no?
