Delay Utility Function

Applies to

Bridge by Smartsheet

With the Delay utility, you can deliberately delay the next step of a workflow. This can be useful if the workflow is chat based and you want replies to feel more natural, as if someone is reading their response or spending time typing a question out. 

You can either specify a delay in seconds, or reference a piece of text and Bridge will automatically calculate a delay based on the string length.

Alternatively, leave both of those options blank and Bridge will pick a random delay between 0-60 seconds.

The maximum delay possible is 60 seconds. If a longer time, or longer string, is specified the delay will still just be 60 seconds.
