Block

The Block action node has a few settings allowing for either parallel or "first-to-finish" execution of the action nodes inside it.

Sleep

Adding a Sleep action node to an action will allow the Action to pause for a given number of milliseconds. Can be useful e.g. if collecting data from an external system fails, and you want to retry automatically 2 seconds later.
