Bridge utilities: Delay

Deliberately delay the next step of a workflow with the Delay utility.


  • Bridge by Smartsheet

The Delay utility requires you to enter one the following fields:

  • Delay: the seconds you want to wait until Bridge executes the next step of your workflow.
  • String: a string from which Bridge calculates the delay according to its length.

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

Alternatively, if you leave both of those options blank and Bridge pick a random delay between 0 to 60 seconds.

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