Salesforce Flow Update in Salesforce Winter ’23

by Dhanik Lal Sahni

Salesforce Flow is an application that automates complex business processes. This tool is replacing all existing tools like process builder, and workflow. Many new features are being added in the winter’23 release. This post will explain the Salesforce Flow update in Salesforce winter’23.

1. Cut and Paste Flow Elements

We can cut and past the flow elements now in Flow Builder.

 To cut an element, click the element and select Cut Element (1).

2. Use Record-Triggered Flows to Update Related Records

We can use record-triggered flows to update any records related to the triggering record. We have to use the Update Records element and select Update records related to the objectName record that triggered the flow. Then, select the related records we want to update. We can also set filters to update only certain related records. If the filter is not specified, all related records are updated.

3. Use In and Not In Operators in Flows to Find Related Records

In the current flow, we can not get records based on the collection filter. This is updated now and we can filter records based on the collection filter. It will help us in reducing governor limits.

We can retrieve all contacts whose IDs are in the list contactIds.

4. Launch Screen Flows With Lightning Web Components

Now we can open the Flow screen using LWC. Lightning flow element lightning-flow will help in opening the Flow screen in LWC. You can see below the code to open Flow product_creation in LWC.

5. Find Flow Elements Faster with Search

We can now search flow action elements and directly use them on canvas. See the below image where we are searching Send Email action. On selection, it will add that element to the canvas.

6. New Data Table (beta) flow screen to show records

We can leverage the new Data Table (beta) flow screen component to display a list of records on a flow screen. We can set the table to read-only, or enable users to select one or more records and use their selections later in the flow.

7. Hide Toolbox from Canvas

We can now hide the toolbox and make it visible when required. This will give extra space while creating business logic on a canvas screen. To make the Toolbox visible, click the toggle Toolbox button (1)

We can now organize record fields and screen components in up to four columns on the screen with the Section component.
