In the Tell task make sure that the "In an alert" box is checked. This will cause the automation to pause and display a dialogue that shows the Tell message. The automation will not proceed until the OK button is clicked.

If the user needs to be able to interact with Openlab while the "Tell" prompt is up then you must also check the "Use a non-modal" alert box.
