Pause

action

Pause the sequence.

Inputs

You can choose either a fixed pause duration or a random pause duration. For a set duration you should specify either a duration in hours, minutes and seconds or a variable.

For a random duration pause you will need to provide both a minimum and maximum pause duration. SEQUEMatic will then randomly select a pause between those two values.

Fixed duration

Pause for a set duration.

Duration

The duration of the pause in hours, minutes and seconds.

Please note for durations over 1 minute, the length of pause in seconds will be accurate to within 30 seconds.

Variable

Specify a variable to be used as the duration. You can also select whether the variable should be treated as seconds, minutes or hours.

You can use either a variable from your profile, or a parameter from the IFTTT webhook trigger or a custom webhook trigger in the value field. Reference them by including their name in curly brackets, for example {time}.

If the variable does not exist, is empty or does not contain a positive number at the time the sequence runs, it will be treated as 0 and the sequence will continue immediately.

Random duration

Pause for a random time between two durations.

Minimum duration

The minimum duration of the pause in hours, minutes and seconds. This must be less than the maximum duration.

Please note for durations over 1 minute, the length of pause in seconds will be accurate to within 30 seconds.

Variable for minimum duration

Specify a variable to be used as the minimum duration. You can also select whether the variable should be treated as seconds, minutes or hours.

You can use either a variable from your profile, or a parameter from the IFTTT webhook trigger or a custom webhook trigger in the value field. Reference them by including their name in curly brackets, for example {time}.

If the variable does not exist, is empty or does not contain a positive number at the time the sequence runs, it will be treated as 0 and the sequence will continue immediately.

Also at the time of running, if the value of the minimum duration variable is greater than the maximum duration, the duration will be set to 0 and the sequence will continue immediately.

Maximum duration

The maximum duration of the pause in hours, minutes and seconds. This must be greater than the minimum duration.

Please note for durations over 1 minute, the length of pause in seconds will be accurate to within 30 seconds.

Variable for maximum duration

Specify a variable to be used as the maximum duration. You can also select whether the variable should be treated as seconds, minutes or hours.

As with the variable for minimum duration, you can use either a variable from your profile, or a parameter from the IFTTT webhook trigger or a custom webhook trigger in the value field. Reference them by including their name in curly brackets, for example {time}.

If the variable does not exist, is empty or does not contain a positive number at the time the sequence runs, it will be treated as 0 and the sequence will continue immediately.

Also at the time of running, if the value of the maximum duration variable is less than the minimum duration, the duration will be set to 0 and the sequence will continue immediately.

Stop a long running sequence

If a running sequence is paused, you can manually stop the sequence from the sequence log page. You can learn more about this here.
