Wait

The wait prompt is useful when your bot needs to run a potentially long-running action (e.g. remote API call) and you’d like to warn the user first.

Rather than leaving the working watching a loading spinner without an explanation, the bot can say “Let me check on that for you. This may take a moment…“, wait, and then run the action.

In a conversational bot behavior, add the Prompt With » Wait action.

You don’t need to configure anything for a wait prompt.

However, you can get creative with the responses that precede it. Using the random() function will add some variety to your bot.
