Usage Examples

This activity is used in projects where there is a clear time separation between actions. For instance, you might want to use the 'Delay' activity for checking email messages, say, every three minutes.

This activity also can be used as a fail-safe option when automating interaction with the interface. However, it is not recommended to overuse the activity since usually it is difficult to predict how much time a certain interface element takes to load. Wait for element will be better solution.
