imgTime Delay๐Ÿ”€ actiondelay the execution of a connection

When one component is connected to another, it is typically executed immediately after the first component has been completed. The Time Delay component allows you to control how components and paths within a workflow are executed using time-based conditions.

Delay until certain time has elapsed#

This option will delay execution of any further connections until a certain amount of time has elapsed once the workflow has reached the time delay component e.g. delay execution for 60 minutes.

Delay until certain time and day of the week#

This option will delay execution of any further connections until a specific time and day of the week has been reached e.g. delay execution until 9:00AM Friday.

note

If the time and day of the week has already passed when the workflow reaches this component, it will wait until the next week i.e. if the component has a delay set to 9:00AM Friday, but the time that it arrives at the component is 10:00AM Friday, the workflow will wait until next week 9:00AM Friday until further connections are executed.

Delay until a specific date and time#

This option will delay execution of any further connections until a specific date and time is reached i.e. delay execution until 9:00AM 24 December 2021.

warning

If the specified date and time has already passed, the component and any further connections will not be run.
