Unfortunately, you have to do some calculations.  The dough cycle takes
about 1 1/2 hours while the regular bread cycle takes about 3 hrs and 50
minutes.  Since you can use the timer function only with the basic bread,
the raisin bread and the french bread cycle, you have to fake it.

If you want dough ready at say 6:00pm, set the timer using the basic cycle
to 8:10pm.  Since the difference between thge dough cycle and the basic
cycle is about 2 hrs and 10 minutes, simply add that time to the time when
you want your dough ready.  You'll even have some leeway since even if you
are 20 minutes late, the dough will still only be in the second rising.

I've done it that way several times and it worked just fine.

Good Luck
