Learn Decision Elements in Winter 21 Flows (Video)

Advanced Decisions are available in Flows with the Salesforce Winter 21 Release. Administrators and low-code developers can utilize the new Decision Criteria Enhancements to make their flows more efficient.

This new feature coupled with the new functionality that provides entry criteria for Record-Triggered Flows opens new doors for Administrators in Winter 21.

In summary, there are two areas where you can use the Advanced Criteria:

  • Decision Elements
    • When to Execute Outcome:
      1. If the condition requirements are met
      2. Only if the record that triggered the flow to run is updated to meet the condition requirements
  • Record-Triggered Flow Start Element (that runs on update in this example)
    • When to Run the Flow for Updated Records:
      1. Every time a record is updated and meets the condition requirements
      2. Only when a record is updated to meet the condition requirements

Two weeks ago I published this blog post that provided an example of a before-save flow going through a decision element to mimic some of the ISCHANGED/ISNEW functionality. In this blog post, I expand on that example to include advanced entry and decision criteria when working on the Opportunity object.
