Delays can be used to tailor the timing and ultimately the feel of the overall experience for the end-user.
There are three types of Delay Nodes available:
Delay for a set amount of time
Delay based on a previous event in experience
Delay until a specific time
Delay For a Set Amount of Time
This type of delay allows you to set an amount of time the experience should hold users at that step until it pushes members to the next node. This node can help prevent the experience from executing all at once.
Delay Based on a Previous Event in Experience
This type of delay can be used to adjust the feel of the experience for the end-user and can also help prevent the experience from executing all at once. The events available to base this delay on must already exist somewhere in the experience previously.
Delay Until a Specific Time
This type of delay can be used to ensure that Actions are only deployed at certain dates/times or within certain windows of time. Those windows of time can be certain days of the week and/or certain hours during the day.
