After a busy week of TDX22 and two Dreamin’ events happening simultaneously, my tired brain is trying to gather and compile all the information. We need to avoid this scheduling conflict in the future.
Let’s dive into the future of automation on the Salesforce platform.
Summer 22 release notes are out. We will know more when the Release Readiness Webinars happen soon. However, we know already that the Orchestrator is GA.
The Orchestrator is a flow of flows, in other words, automation that helps us string flows together. It gives us the superpowers of scheduling and delaying screen interactions and assigning them to users, queues, and groups. Please read J. Steadman’s blog post here for the details.
On top of that, we have a few other posts worth mentioning that were published recently:
- Salesforce published impressive numbers about automation growth on the Salesforce platform: Salesforce’s Expanded Flow Automation Suite Now Delivers More Than 1 Trillion Monthly Automations. Flow now supports Slack, Tableau, and Mulesoft. There is one interesting detail in this press release; the release mentions RPA (Robotic Process Automation). This term is linked to a post from December about Mulesoft on Hyperautomation. The coverage on the CIO website says that Salesforce is looking to add RPA capabilities later this year.
- Salesforce is adding low code testing with this release (in beta), and we know that Mulesoft already has this functionality.
- Again with Summer 22, Flow Trigger Explorer adds a few missing functionality items missing from the launch to make the tool feel much more complete.
- The workflow rule and process builder push to flow is in full motion.
What do all these signs tell me:
We are in for a faster ride than ever before. Buckle up.
