A user asked if there was a way to add a delay before the baseline screenshot capture when setting up a Scoutbees alert. The Product Manager responded that this is not feasible as of today. The user then provided more information on why they would find this feature useful – they are using Scoutbees to monitor the functionality of an application, but after an update the screenshot is taken before the application has a chance to launch, causing a baseline screenshot check to fail.
