As the Salesforce Winter ’24 release is live. In the last post we covered the Winter ’24 release. Today we will cover release updates related to Salesforce Winter ’24 Flow points.
We can now build flows with reactive flow screen components. We can configure components to react o changes on another component. Previously we need to use multi screen to reflect the data changes. We can also use Reactive Global Variables in flow. Previously it was not supported.
We can now use the new Custom Error Message element to create specific error message in before and after record save flow. The error messages display in a window on the overall record page or as an inline error on a specific field.
We can now use GET and POST to make callout from Salesforce flow. More easily integrate external data with the new PUT, PATCH, and DELETE methods. Give more context about HTTP callout parameters, validate JSON samples faster, and get more information about the external service registration with more organized sections of parameters.
With the new Transform element, we can now transform our data. Using the Action element and callout, we can transform data outside Salesforce without any code. Previously we need to use loop and assignment variable to achieve the same results.
Now we can save Flow without configuring some elements. Previously when we do this we got errors. Now we will get warning for the same. We an save flows without fully configuring the Start elements in record-triggered flows and Create Records elements in all flows. To facilitate this change, some element properties windows now slide open next to the flow in the canvas.
Salesforce objects and Data Cloud objects are now organized into separate sections in Flow Builder. When you select a Data Cloud object, an object card provides more details.
The Wait for Amount of Time element and the Wait Until Date element are now available in schedule-triggered flows, auto launched flows, and orchestrations. Previously, these wait elements were available only for journeys.
We can now use Migrate to Flow tool to migrate the pending Time-Based Actions to flow. previously when we perform this then the pending Actions were inactive and deleted.
To facilitate migrating Workflow Rules to Flow Builder, some customers who are using Essentials or Professional editions are being granted an increase on the number of active and total flows. The impacted organizations will receive individual communications with more details. If you expected this limit increase and don’t see it, contact customer support.
So these are the some updates related to Salesforce Winter ’24 Flow. Which update you liked the most, for me its callout from Flow. Let me know in comments. Happy Programming 🙂
