Announcing Delay, Command-Line Arguments, and Copy-Paste Features for UI Flows

We are excited to announce the availability of Delay, Command-line argument, and Copy-paste features in Power Automate UI flows. These features empower our customers to have more options in building UI flows and more control over UI flow executions.


The Delay action can be added as an explicit action anywhere in UI flow. The wait time’ formatting is straightforward: enter the duration count and pick the unit of time. For example, ‘2’ and ‘Seconds’ would configure this action to wait two seconds. Read the full documentation.
