Building your business logic using Salesforce Flows
sometimes becomes even more complicated than using Apex code.
And that is quite reasonable – a lot of graphic elements on the screen are hard to read.
Their relationships, decision splits, and outcomes are complex to understand.
Of course, while a business is growing, its IT backend system is evolving accordingly.
Large and broad flow/subflow configuration scrims become a jumble. They require a higher-level approach
to organize their interaction and gain the ability to manage complex structures and blocks of approval
processing, guided working flows
for employees, stage-driven automated decision-making
processes, and so on.
To help manage complex systems delivered by Flows, Salesforce introduced a Flow Orchestrator
tool. It organizes existing flow definitions into steps
and combines these steps into stages
to set up their execution order and processing activation threshold. The advantages of Flow Orchestrator include:
- improved flexibility in creating approval processes
- the ability to assign work to any Salesforce user
- better control over record lifecycles
Feel free to try this tool and organize your system better
– its pilot is already embedded in SF instances.
