Incorporating a delay step entails introducing a brief pause into your workflow.

Usually all steps in a workflow run one after the other (except the email step which waits until the email has been sent). The delay step is to define a deliberate pause for the following step.

Delay Options

With every delay step, you have several options:

Delay by time

Delay the following step by a certain amount of minutes, hours, days, weeks, or months.

Delay until a specific time

Delay the following step until a certain time is reached.

Delay until 21:00 today

Delay until next Monday at 09:00

Delay until the 14th of the next month

Delay until the 13th of May 2023

If the given timeframe is missed the next will be used.
