Get to know Delay by Zapier

Delay by Zapier solves that. It's a built-in app that acts as a snooze button for your data. Don't worry, we've got good reasons for taking it slow: Delay lets you decide exactly when something passes from one app to another, which means you can set up timelines for your Tasks.

Delay holds onto your data until you're ready for us to release it. And to make sure you have granular control over the process, we set up two Actions that work like virtual traffic cops for your automation highway:

delay for

Delay For waits for a set amount of time before completing your actions. You choose how far in the future we should let you data out of the gates, like 4 minutes, 8 hours, or 15 days from now. Just pick a unit of time, how many ticks you want us to wait for, and we'll do the rest.

delay until

Delay Until waits to run your actions until a date or time that you choose. That could be the next Monday, the 1st of the month, or every Friday at 4:00 p.m. You can even calculate your delay based on a field from a previous step, like [due date] + 3 days. Learn more about modifying dates and times on the fly.

Delay brings a new layer of customization and timing to any Zap. To help get the gears turning, here are some ways that you could use the Delay app to queue up time-based events.
