  2. Wait until a specific Date - If selected, any contact that enters the wait is held in the wait until the specified end day and time. If the specified day and time has already passed when a contact reaches this type of wait activity, the contact immediately proceeds to the next activity.
  3. Wait for a Date based on an Attribute value - If a goal has been configured for the journey, Journey Builder evaluates each contact once daily while it's in the wait. If the contact meets the goal while in the wait, and the exit option has been selected for the goal, the contact exits the journey at that time. If the goal's exit option is not selected, the contact proceeds to the next activity.
