Delay

Hi experts,

 

unfortunately I despair with the relatively simple task of making a flow wait a certain time.

The action Delay, which should exist, is unfortunately not findable.

 

I'm working with the trigger 'When a row is created, updated or deleted'.

Under 'Advanced options' i can find the option: Delay until:

Enter a time to delay the trigger evaluation, eg. 2020-01-01T10:00Z

 

How can I specify in this form that it should wait only 10 seconds?

Thanks in advance!

Thanks for your feedback, but the function described there is not listed for me.

Any other, even premium functions, I can find, just not this one.

That's why I wanted to solve this with the trigger delay.

Hi @danielst ,

 

If we can add dynamic value, the following expression should work: @addSeconds(utcNow(),10)

 

However, it doesn't. The value seems like arranging a specific date as static value to start awakening based on the business requirement.

 

Best regards,

Jisung Han
