Let’s get started with the Winter 23 Flow enhancements, shall we? Who doesn’t like to save time and effort?
One of the biggest improvements is the formula resource editor with the instant syntax check button.
This functionality first came for the start element and the collection filter in the previous releases. Now we get the same editor across the board in the flow builder.
No more writing a formula, saving the flow, and crossing your fingers hoping it won’t yield an error message.
You can check for errors as you build your formula on the same screen using the Syntax Check button.
One disclaimer is that I saw some inconsistent behavior in my preview Dev Org:
Some of the collection filter formulas I built that I thought should pass, did not pass the syntax check. But we still have time until the release. I am sure it will be ready by then.
Now content announcements:
- I am super excited that my session proposal has been accepted for Florida Dreamin’ 2022. I will be presenting there for the third year in a row. My session is titled: “Flow Design & Mapping: From Idea to the Flow Canvas“. It will be super interesting, I promise you. Come and see it: Register for the event here.
- Last week, I presented the new Winter 23 Flow functionality at a virtual Jacksonville Salesforce Saturday event. I tried out the new enhancements live and recorded the event. Watch Winter 23 Flow Features – Salesforce Saturday here.
