Wait for specified time

We use MS FLOW and CRM Dynamics to send a contact an email when a field changes.

Woul like to launch a new FLOW or take the next step in a FLOW after 3 days. To allow contact to receive and review email.

 

Any thoughts?

 

Thanks, Gary.

Use the delay until action in flow to delay by 3 days

to delay by 3 days use expression

addDays(utcnow(),3)

Hi Reza,

 

Sounds like it should work. Except for my ignorance 😞

Where / which step / condition do I add 

addMinutes(utcNow(),10)
to add a 10 minute pause in a Flow of On field change wait 10 minutes then send email.
 
I've used variations of this

Hi @GaryBauer,

 

After the 3 days delay continues to execute the Flow, what's the meaning of "to allow contact to receive and review email"?

It seems to need to wait for an email arrived, do you have any question about this part?
