Record-Triggered Flows

All About Record-Triggered Flows in Salesforce | The Salesforce Trailhead Guide

In this blog, we will discuss the topic of Triggered flows. There are three general types of flows: 

  • Screen Flow 
  • Auto launched Flow 
  • Triggered Flow 

A record-triggered auto-launched flow makes additional updates to the triggering record before it’s saved to the database to trigger a flow when: 

  • A record is created 
  • A record is updated 
  • A record is created or updated 
  • A record is deleted 

In a record trigger we create a record and then we have some sort of trigger on our flow and those flow is going to be executed and all the actions we have performed on the flow will also going to be executed. 

To create a record trigger flow, as shown in the below image we will use the steps below.
