What are flows in Salesforce?

A flow is a Salesforce Flow component that collects data and performs actions in your Salesforce org or another system.

Salesforce Flow provides two types of flows: screen flow and auto launched flows. To automate a business process that collects data from people who use a screen flow.

Screen Flow:

You can utilize ScreenFlow to construct a custom UI (user interface) and guide users through a business process that can be launched from Lightning Pages, Experience Cloud (formerly known as Community Cloud), quick actions, and other places.

Auto launched Flow:

When Apex, Process Builder, or even REST API is invoked, it launches.

  • Flows are accessible through the Setup menu—->Quick Find box
  • Type ‘Flows’ and create a new Flow to get started.

There are three blocks of Flow.

  • Elements
  • Connectors
  • Resources

Elements:

Each piece represents an action, such as presenting or collecting data from flow users, or querying, generating, updating, and removing data in Salesforce.

Connectors:

At run time, connectors decide the possible channels that a flow can take. A connector in Flow Builder appears on the canvas as an arrow pointing from one element to another.

Resources:

Resources are the individual data variables used in a Flow – these can be text strings, integers, records, equations, or collections.
