Delay redirection of an entity form

Hi all, 

I have an entity form, which allows user to create records. I am redirecting the user  to another web page with the same record after saving the entity from. The reason of that is the entity form contains a sub grid and the sub grid isn't shown in the entity form before creating the record. Until here everything works fine. 

 

I built a Power Automate flow to relate this entity record to another entity (mainly to populate the sub grid in my entity form). The flow works also fine but it takes 1 or 2 seconds to finish its run. The problem is that sometimes redirecting user to the next page takes less time than flow's running time and the record in the sub grid won't appear after redirecting. 

 

I thought about delaying the redirection after saving the first entity form around 3 seconds to wait flow finish its run but I don't know how I can do that. 

 

Can someone help me with that? 

Thanks in advance.

Hi

 

you could add a JS in your seconds web page and force the reload, but that's not exactly a nice approach, it is not guaranteed that your subgrid will have data anyway

 

my opinion in this scenario you shouldn't be using Power Automate, this should happen in the same transaction as your insert, so this should be a Sync workflow/plugin

A Power Automate flow at the moment only supports async processes as far as I am aware

I didn't like this approach too but it was the easiest way. I tried relating the records with a real-time workflow but it doesn't work within an OOB workflow. 

you might be able to achieve with custom code then
