Salesforce provides a single application to multiple organizations, which makes it a multi-tenant platform. Therefore, Salesforce enforces limits to make sure that flows don’t take over the shared resources in the multi-tenant environment.
Salesforce introduced a new flow element called Collection Filter in the Spring ’22 release. It is available in all the core flow types. Although it is not one of the main elements that you need in every flow, it is a very important one indeed.
There are endless things that you can perform using Salesforce Flow. In many cases, you might need to create a link to a record in flow.
Winter ’23 release is approaching and it will be in our environments soon. Just like the last few releases, also this new release has many great features for Salesforce Flow.
Salesforce introduced a brand new element called Roll Back Records in the Winter ’22 Release. Roll Back Records data element is available only in screen flows. You can use it to roll back a transaction and cancel all its pending record changes.
Unlike the other automation tools like Workflow Rule and Process Builder, there is an option to delete records in Flow. You can use the Delete Records data element to delete one or multiple records in Salesforce.
Delete operation can be used to delete records from the database, which sends those records to the recycle bin. In some use cases, you may want to hard delete the records so that the users cannot restore them. However, there is no standard way to hard delete records in Salesforce Flow.
In the last few months, many people asked if I have an online Salesforce Flow course. Therefore, it was the time for me to prepare a Udemy course. I am happy to announce that my course called “Salesforce Lightning Flow Course by the FlowFest Champion” is live on Udemy!
Audit fields in Salesforce track information about system values that can be useful for audit purposes. These fields are read only and Salesforce sets the values whenever you create or update a record.
In some cases, users might need to give a break while running a flow. It is possible to let the users pause the flow interviews and then resume whenever they want. Plus, they won’t lose any valid information that they entered.
