 +====== Delay ======
 +{{ :​en:​start:​tasks:​flow:​task_delay.png?​nolink|}}
 +This task allows you to insert one or more delays into your workflows, which pause the execution until a given date/time will be reach.
 +===== Options =====
 +You could combine multiple of this options, to use this universally
 +  * Base Date
 +    * Use the date from this field as base date and apply all options to them
 +    * //​Dynamically updated base date// means, the delay will be updated if you modify the field, which was selected as base date. So you could wait a period of time, which could be defined by users and could be modified after the delay was initiated
 +  * minimum delay
 +    * This Option guarantee a minimum wait time if you never want to act immediately
 +    * Also this is the default delay, if you simple want to wait 1 hour
 +    * you could set minutes/​hours/​days/​weeks
 +  * wait until next ...
 +    * this option wait until one selected day of week is reached
 +    * or wait until the given day of a month is reached
 +  * wait until time is
 +    * if you don’t want to continue this workflow before 8 o’clock, you can do this with this option. (Please pay attention to the UTC timezone)
 +  * wait until custom time
 +    * Here you could integrate your own custom function
 +    * You have to return an Unix Timestamp, which overwrite the base date (All other options will be applied to this date, too!)
 +If you want to **wait until a field has a configured value**, please combine the features of delay and conditions. (For example if you want to wait until a checkbox was set)
