Hey there so waiting for elements in Cypress, a crucial aspect for stable tests. Here’s how you can ensure that an element becomes visible within a specific timeframe:

// Give this element 10 seconds to appear
cy.get('[data-test=submitIsVisible]', { timeout: 10000 }).should('be.visible');

And remember, Cypress itself provides detailed guidance on this topic in their official documentation: How can I make Cypress wait until something is visible in the DOM.
