Workflow wait task

Hi,

I have a scenario where I have to make the workflow to wait for 3 minutes before an approval process. For that I had created a step wait in the workflow just before the approval step and in the Requested Start tab for this step, I had mentioned 3 minutes time but its not working. I had to write WAIT UP TO 180 SECONDS. in the code meant for the approval method in BOR object. Its working ok since then. But I think its not a good way of using BOR object. Is there any means by which I can use the step wait in the workflow ?

Please reply.

Regards,

Binay.

    Hi Binay,

    You can use the Requested start feature for this. It is possible that the work item deadline monitoring background job is not running or is set for too long of an interval. I have found that you can have problems if you have a time that is equal to or shorter than the interval for the background job.

    Run SWWA to see if the job is running. The name of the job is SWWDHEX.
