Adding wait steps

Important information about using wait steps

All find actions in mabl, including assertions and clicks, will automatically wait up to 30 seconds for the targeted element to appear. There is generally no need to add an additional wait step before an assertion or another find action, unless the element will take more than 30 seconds to appear in your app, or if the element comes into existence without being fully realized. In the latter case, a wait step before the assertion may be necessary as mabl will evaluate as soon as it detects that the target element exists.
