Salesforce Winter’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 its major focus area in recent releases. So today we will check some of the highlighted related to Salesforce Winter’23 Flow Updates.
Cut and Paste Flow Elements
In the Auto layout we can now cut and paste elements. Previously we need to copy the existing element and delete the original one.
Use Formula Builder in Flow Resources and Collection Filter Elements
We can now use an enhanced formula builder in Flow Formula-type resources and the Collection Filter element.
Filter Your Picklists By Record Type in Flow Screens
When using Dynamic Forms for Flow, we will get picklist value filtered based on Record type. Previously we get all the picklist values irrespective of the RecordType selection.
Use ISCLONE in Record-Triggered Flow Formulas
We can now use IsClone() function in Record-triggered flows. When copying formulas containing
ISCLONE into record-triggered flows, use the
$Record global variable instead of the object. For example, to use
ISCLONE (account.x) in a record-triggered flow formula, change it to
Use Record-Triggered Flows to Update Related Records
We can now update related record in record triggered flow. Use the Update Records element and select Update records related to the
objectName record that triggered the flow.
Use In and Not In Operators in Flows to Find Related Records
We can now use In and Not In operator in Get Records, Update Records, and Delete Records elements. It support accessing collections of type Text, Number, Date, Date/Time, Currency, and Boolean. We can simply make a collection variable and can use that to filter records in query elements.
Launch Screen Flows With Lightning Web Components
We can now launch Screen flows using Lightning Web Components. We can also customize finish behavior, setting custom styling and can move custom logic to flow.
<template> <lightning-flow flow-api-name='Survey_customers' > </lightning-flow> </template>
Control Flow Screen Visibility Based on Record Field Values
We can now control a component’s visibility based on record fields on the same screen. Previously, if a user changed the value in a record field and that record field’s record variable was used in a conditional visibility rule for a screen component on the same screen, that rule is ignored.
Get Multicolumn Flow Layouts with the Section Component
Using the new Section component we can now make four columns. It means we can add record field or other components in a single column.
So these are the some of the points from upcoming release. There are other updates related to Flow Slack components. Let me know which point you like most about Salesforce Winter’23 Flow Updates. Happy Programming 🙂
