It doesn't matter when you add it, though if your pool is very low in Cyanuric Acid (CYA, aka stabilizer or conditioner), then doing so right away will protect chlorine breakdown from sunlight.
You can go into the pool immediately after adding it. It dissolves VERY slowly, taking days. In fact, if you want it to dissolve faster, then put it in a sock or stocking and hang it over a return flow. Or you can put it into a sock or stocking or skimmer sock or old T-shirt in the skimmer, but make sure there is alternate water flow (i.e. other skimmers or floor drains or a bypass for the skimmer into the pool) since it will block most of the skimmer flow initially. It will then dissolve in less than 8 hours if the pump is running at high speed.
