Introducing “Mastering Salesforce Flows”
A training/workshop that will get you up and running in Salesforce Flows from scratch and will turn you into a Flow master. And this course will not just teach you the tool but will also give you a framework on how to migrate your existing automations to Flows.
Flows is the future of automation in Salesforce and is a declarative tool. There are different types of Flows (like different tools in a Swiss army knife) that you can use for different purpose in different situations. Salesforce currently offers the following types of Flows:
Screen Flow: With Screen Flow you can create a custom UI (user interface) and guide users through a business process that can be launched from Lightning Pages, Experience Cloud (previously known as Community Cloud), quick actions and more.
Record-Triggered Flow: This Flow launches when is record is created, updated, or deleted. So far, we have used Apex triggers for these automations some of which can now be done using Flows.
Scheduled-Triggered Flow: This flow launches at the specified time and frequency for each record in a batch. Traditionally we have met this kind of requirement using Apex batch jobs.
Platform Event Flow: Launches when a platform event message is received. For example, you can pump the data from external system in Platform Events and then use Flows to split and save the records in different objects.
Auto launched Flow: Launches when invoked by Apex, Process Builder or even REST API
With all these different types of Flows, how does the automation landscape in Salesforce now looks like? Well, we think now you can potentially replace the following with Flows. So
