Delay Helper

Pause flow execution for some time
The Delay Helper allows to pause a flow for some time, e.g. when a system has a known rate limit of only 100 API calls per minute, or it is known, a system needs some time until an object that has been created is ready to accept child objects that are associated to it.
The helper has the following two options:
  • Seconds
  • Minutes
Note: The maximum to be entered is 59. And the maximum delay time is five minutes. We highly recommend, to not delay for more than 3 minutes at the maximum. Excessive delay times may lead to your flow being paused. It is best practice to keep pausing always below one minute (60 seconds).
Using advanced mode, you can also make the delay dependent on the flow contents or even random:
