Workflow Action: Start Timer Component

Workflow Action: Start Timer Component


The Start Timer component is used to pause the workflow for a specified amount of time (in Seconds).

Configuration Options

Name: The name assigned to this component.
Description: Enter a description for the component.
Condition Type: If the condition returns true, then the Action will be performed. If condition returns false, then the Action will not be performed. If there is no condition specified, the Action will always be performed.
Time: Enter the amount of time, in seconds, to pause the workflow.

A sample of a condition could be:
If the system should only pause if the caller pressed ‘1’ in a menu, the Condition Type would be as follows:

Expression: workitem.digits == ‘1’

  • workitem.digits would be entered in the first field
  • ‘==’ would be selected from the dropdown
  • ‘1’ would be entered in the last field

Here is a sample of how to use the Start Timer component:
If you would like to play music for 30 seconds before continuing in the workflow:
In the the workflow after a Play Music component add a Start Timer component.

  • In the Start Timer component, configure the Time with a value of: 30

This will allow the music to play for 30 seconds before going to the next component in the workflow.

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
