Wait step

# What to use the wait step for

This step allows you to add a wait to pause your bot run. You can do this to interact with the page and manually enter a password. But the most common use is to slow the bot by a fraction of a second to allow HTML elements, such as a button, to load.

A top tip when testing your Axiom: if you notice actions out of sync or a misfiring clicks, try adding a wait. Its most likely the click fired before the button loaded.

You can use this step to:

  • Pause you bot and interact with the page only on Desktop or VPS
  • Wait to allow data to load
  • Slow the bot to allow buttons and new elements to load
  • Allow long file uploads

# How to configure the Wait step

# Set a time in milliseconds

One second it 1000 milliseconds, for waits between click elements try 500.
