Focus: The focus of this public FAQ/Self Help guide is to provide you an overview and details about building Cliently flows with a Time Delay Action.

What are Cliently Flows?: A flow is a list of items based upon “actions” that were added. For Example: Send email, wait 1 day, Send Video message, wait 2 days, Send postcard. (Per Action) Email, etc… Learn more about using Cliently flows by checking out our overview.

What is a Time Delay Action? A Time Delay action is an action you can add to your flows to pause other actions from executing until the number of "days" in the delay has been completed. Each 1-day added is based on a full 24-hour cycle from the last action executed. For example: if you've set up a flow with an email action to go out at 9:00 am on a Monday, then add a time delay of 2 days, the action after the delay will go out at 9am on Wednesday, as 48 hours has passed.

Step 1: Reviewing a flow to that includes Time Delay action. In our example below, a flow that has been created with a Email Action and Video Message action. We will be adding a “Time Delay” action to our flow.

Pro-Tip: You can click-hold using your mouse over the left side actions to move them up and down to modify the sequence of the actions.

Step 2: Adding a time delay. Next, we have added the time delay action. Enter in the number of days and click on the blue “Save” button to save the action to your flow.
