This action  causes the flowchart to sleep for the number of Time (inSecs) specified. Sleep may be used if the system is polling for events for a "period of time" before resuming execution of the flowchart actions.  In general,  wherever a periodic action needs to be run Sleep action can be used if the underlying API doesn't have a Push mechanism (e.g. Slack has a push mechanism so we will usually avoid Sleep when waiting for message from Slack)

Example of when a Sleep Action is used:

When the user wants to check every 30secs if there is a new row in database table. To set it up – While Loop with 30secs Sleep Action will be required.
