Microsoft Dynamics CRM 4 Workflow

I am looking to create a workflow that will wait in Leads for an activity to be created. If one is not created within a certain time frame then notify a user/queue etc

I can find the wait for condition but cannot find how to wait for something to be created

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

You can do this using Workflow, Activities Count. Activities Count is a number that indicates how many activities are recorded against a record.

In essence, it is a wait condition on the Activities Count becoming greater than 0.  You could also add a parallel wait condition to time out after a defined period.

How would i add the parallel wait condition with this?
Feridun KadirPrincipal ConsultantCommented:
Add the first wait condition with the appropriate details (e.g. the activity count check)
Then click on Add- Step and choose Parallel Wait. In the Parallel wait choose workflow timeout of e.g. 3 days.
Then whichever of the two wait conditions completes first will cause workflow on to the next step.
