Data Table is Generally Available

No More Element Iteration Limit 

When your flow reached 2000 items, a flow-specific limit was triggered. This limitation proved a problem for more significant flows with loops. Although there were some workarounds for this limitation, it was undeniably an issue.  This constraint is removed in the Spring ’23 version, and you may say goodbye to the ITERATION_LIMIT_EXCEEDED error! 

HTTP Callout (Beta) 

You can now access external web services using the action element’s new HTTP Callout (Beta) button. You can make the callout directly from this action by specifying a Named Credential and providing a sample JSON Response. After receiving a sample JSON answer, the flow will automatically construct a matching data structure. This data structure is accessible in Flow Builder without using any code. Then you can map data types from the JSON response to flow variables.

Dynamic Forms for Flow Now Supports Multi-Select Picklists 

Despite significant constraints, dynamic Forms for Flow became broadly available with the Winter ’23 release. Additionally, active Forms for Flow begins to offer multi-select picklist fields in the Spring ’23 release. 

The multi-select experience differs from the multi-select choice element in several ways. However, dynamic Forms for Flow multi-select picklist fields provide the same experience as record page multi-select picklist fields.

Reactive Screen Components (Beta) 

A dream has come true! You can use reactive screen components to make your screen components react to a user’s activities on the same screen. Before the Spring ’23 version, you had to put a component in a different screen to react to changes in another component. 

To participate in the beta, you must enable the permission in Process Automation Settings. 

Reactive Screen Components (Beta)
  • Save

The following reactive components are supported in the Spring ’23 release: 

Text, Date, Date, Time, Checkbox, Number, Password, Currency, Data Table, Email, Name, Address, Slider, Toggle, and Custom LWC Components are all valid options. 

Choices, Formulas, Display Text, and Record Fields (Dynamic Forms for Flow) have yet to be reactive but will be in the future.

  • You can use this new component to present your options in a lookup fashion. On the other side, you can use this component with a filtered record choice set or collection choice set. This allows you to create lookups with filters. 
  • When you click on the field, it displays all available options, similar to a picklist field (and not like a lookup field).

Migrate to Flow Tool Supports Process Builder Processes 

  • Salesforce released the Migrate to Flow Tool a while ago. Prior to the Spring ’23 release, it could only migrate workflow rules. You can use the same tool to migrate your Process Builder processes as of the Spring ’23 version. 
  • First, decide which process you wish to move.

The ‘New Flow’ Modal now includes Record-Triggered Orchestrations. 

Creating a new orchestration is now much easier to find. The ‘New Flow’ modal that displays when creating a new Flow now includes Record-Triggered orchestrations. If you require access to an auto launched orchestration, you can do it via the ‘All + Templates’ page.

Work Guide Mobile Support is now available. 

The work guide component may now be accessed on phones and tablets, allowing your users to engage in an orchestration while on the road. 

Orchestrations as Templates 

Do you need to re-use an orchestration? Orchestrations can now be saved as a template, so your users or customers don’t have to start from zero. 

Integration with MuleSoft 

You may now connect directly to the Anypoint platform using the new MuleSoft Services tab in Setup, then utilize this connection to discover and register REST APIs from your Anypoint Platform as an External Service. 

This dramatically simplifies and expedites connecting to the Anypoint Platform, saving you countless steps.
