Salesforce Spring ’23 Release is here. You can take a quick look in the release updates here. While the post cover points related to Admin and Developer both, We will hit the limit the if we include flow in that :p. As flow is major focus area in recent releases. So today we will check some of the highlighted related to Salesforce Spring ’23 Flow Updates.
Bring External Data into Flow Builder Without Code (Beta)
We can now set up direct integrations as needed without code or a middleware service, such as Mulesoft. We can make Flow Builder actions that call web-based service APIs using HTTP Callout. After we add the details of the API, Flow Builder generates a reusable action that we can use right away in Flow Builder and across Salesforce.
Build Screens with Interactive Components (Beta)
We can now configure our flow elements and LWC to interact with each other. This will allow them to communicate with each other and we can make single page application.
Add Lookup Fields to Your Flow Screens with Ease
We can now easily add Lookup fields to flow screens and create a record directly from the Lookup field with Dynamic Forms for Flow. On the Records tab, hover over a Lookup field from your record resource, and then drag in your desired Lookup field.
Select a Value from a List of Choices with the Choice Lookup Component (Beta)
With the Choice Lookup (beta) flow screen component, users can select from a list of external data values, picklist values, static values, or records that we filtered when we configured the flow. For example, rather than asking users to scroll through a long picklist to select a value, use the Choice Lookup (beta) component to enable users to search for values. The Choice Lookup (beta) component supports all choice resources, including collection choice sets and picklist choice sets.
Select Multiple Records from a Table in a Flow Screen (Generally Available)
We can use Data Table flow screen component to display a table of records on a flow screen. We can make it table read only or allow users to select one or more records.
Convert Processes to Flows with the Migrate to Flow Tool
We can convert Process builder and Workflow to flow using the Migrate to Flow tool.
The Migrate to Flow tool supports only record-triggered processes. Custom event and custom invocable type processes aren’t supported. Processes containing scheduled actions, custom metadata types, and field traversals aren’t supported. For supported processes, you can migrate these action types.
- Record update
- Record create
- Invoke flow
- Invoke Apex
- Email alert
Run Screen Flows from Slack (Beta)
We can run a screen flow without input parameters using shortcuts or a button in Slack. Use the Apex SDK for Slack (Beta) to define an app or a view in Slack that invokes a flow that has the Make available in Slack advanced setting selected.
So these are the few updates from Salesforce Spring ’23 Flow Updates. let me know which point you liked the most. Happy Programming 🙂
