Flow update records

Hello,

I created a screen flow for approval process.

Flows gets the 11 fields from one custom object if they are not blank then the approval process triggers. If some fields are bank then there is a screen which shows the fields that needs to be updated.

Question: I have created an Update element for the Account object as 3 out of the 11 fields are formula fields. The other 8  fields belong to the custom object. Can i update fields to other objects as well? Is there a step by step guide anywhere?

Hi Alex,

Greetings!

You can only retrieve the other 8 fields from the custom Object if the Account and other custom Object are related to each other.You can try accessing the fields from the Object and submit the record for approval as suggested here.

Please mark it as best answer if it helps you to fix the issue.

Thank you!
