Wait Actions…

Wait is a simple and effective tool for setting up delays in automated Tasks. Just specify the amount of time to expire before the Task continues with following Actions. The Wait feature is especially useful when the Task initiates a parallel process and needs to allocate time for its completion.

Wait for Time pauses a Task until the specified time on the same day or another day of the week.

Wait for File pauses the Task until a specified file is created, deleted, becomes accessible or inaccessible.

Wait for Service pauses a Task until Windows service or driver has reached a specific status—installed, running, paused, stopped, or disabled.

Wait for App Action waits until an application or background process is running or is terminated.
