Flow, New Release

Winter 23 Flow Usability Improvements Will Make Your Life Easier

Winter 23 comes with several flow usability improvements:

  • The toolbox left panel is turned off by default in auto-layout to make more screen space.
  • Element search on the Add Element screen supports text search for element names and subflows & actions.
  • Salesforce is reporting now that the canvas is bigger with more area to play with.
  • Screen configuration screen in screen flows takes up more screen space to allow more visibility for columns and component previews.
  • Update related records in Record-Triggered Flows got easier: A dedicated radio choice has been added.

Let me show a few of these with supporting images: add element dialogue now supports text entry. Elements, subflows, and actions are returned and displayed on the screen in response to the text search.

When you added a screen element in your flow builder, the configuration screen took a smaller portion of the screen, which made working with the screen design difficult. Now you get a bigger configurator window.

Updating records related to the records that triggered your flow got more guidance with this dedicated radio choice in the Update Records element.
