How to add a delay in between 2 function call in custom action

Hi all,

I am trying to add a delay between the message and the opening the link, but I am not able to do so using the Time.sleep() function in python.

How can I add a delay b/w the message and the (webbrowser.open(url))opening the link in new tab.

what is happening–> The url opens in the new tab then the message gets delevered in the bot what I want to do–> get the message and after 5 sec open the url.

Thanks in Advance… Please help me to sort this out

class ActionLink(Action):

def name(self) -> Text:

    return "action_link"



def run(self, dispatcher: CollectingDispatcher,

        tracker: Tracker,

        domain: Dict[Text, Any]) -> List[Dict[Text, Any]]:

         entities = tracker.latest_message['entities']

         print(entities)

         Intent = tracker.latest_message['intent']['name']

         print(Intent)
         for e in entities:

             if e['entity'] == 'Solution_type_datascience' :

                 url = "https://forum.rasa.com/"

                 dispatcher.utter_message(text="Taking you to the data science page. The page will open in the new tab. Happy to help. 😄 ")

                 dispatcher.utter_message(text="Taking you to the data science source page")
                 
                 webbrowser.open(url)

             if e['entity'] == 'Solution_type_conversational_ai' :

                 url = "https://forum.rasa.com/"

                 dispatcher.utter_message(text="Taking you to the conversation ai page. The page will open in the new tab. Happy to help. 😄 ")

                time.sleep(5)

                 webbrowser.open(url)
         return []
