Sleep is used to place a workflow into inactive state for a period of time. This ends when an interval expires or an interruption causes the workflow to resume execution.

A sleep function specifies the minimum amount of time that a process will “sleep” before resuming execution. The parameter is specified in seconds.

There’s no guarantee that the process will execute after the specified time has passed, but it’ll be inactive for the amount of time set.

Drag and drop Sleep inside a workflow where a green field appears. Doing so makes it a part of the workflow.


  1. Decide how many Seconds a process will sleep before resuming.

  2. Run the workflow to see the effect applied.

To disable a Sleep block without deleting it, use the slider on the left of its name.
