Hello everyone! Using tasks with manual approval is a nice way to semi-automate the flows that could not be fully automated yet. A great feature about paused tasks could be to support a time-out functionality. When a time-out value is passed, paused task will stay paused only for a period of time and the user will always has the ability to resume/approve the task earlier that the time-out. A use case: Use prefect to start an ECS instance for N hours but allow user to stop the instance any time he thinks that the task in ECS instance is done. Always stop instance after N hours to prevent extra charges. I know that this feature is currently not supported but I would like to know if you find it is useful and also how this functionality could be implemented with prefect.
Nice idea! I'll let others chime in here to say if there's interest. If so, it might be a good idea open a ticket as it's easier to keep track of suggestions in github than slack!
