The Delay Task activity is used to deliberately introduce a delay to a task. This may be required if the task could not finish due to missing information that may become available later.

For more information, see Delay Task in the Hyland RPA Activities documentation.

Delay Interval

The Delay Interval defines the interval of time the task should be delayed. After that time has elapsed, it is available to be processed again. To set an interval shorter than one day, it should be specified as 08:30:00 (8 hours, 30 minutes, 0 seconds), for example. To set an interval larger than or equal to one day, it is set like this: 1.10:30:00 (1 day, 10 hours, 30 minutes, 0 seconds).

Max Retries

Max Retries defines the maximum number of retries after which the task will switch from "delayed" to "error." Setting the max retries to 5 means that if the task cannot be completed after the 5th attempt, it is set to an error with the remark "Max retries exceeded."
