AF360FGZ II Flash slow-speed sync with K3?

What is the best way to use the slow-speed sync on this flash with K3? I am using the TAv mode, as I could not find a dedicated function on the flash or camera menu in connection with this flash.
Is there another easier way?

isn't it in the flash menu on the 4-way controller?

I always use manual mode on the camera with PTTL flash. Set shutter to 1/150 to 1/180 and aperture to give about -1 to -2 stops under expose and let the flash do the rest. Bounce works well indoors as direct flash is harsh

Some modes other than X or M will put the Iso too high.

This is good advice!
