Using delays

Delays offer the ability to temporarily pause your workflow for a designated duration before proceeding. This functionality proves useful in scenarios where you wish to establish a workflow that dispatches tips on utilizing a particular feature after a user's initial encounter with it.

Setting up a delay

To setup a delay, simply locate the 'Add delay' button and configure the desired duration for the delay.

Skipping a delay

Skipping the delay will fast-forward the delay and continue to the next step in the workflow. If you want to skip a delay, you can do so from a workflow run page. Open up the workflow run from your activity page and click on 'Skip delay'.
