About Flows - Visual Workflows

Hi,

 

Can any one please guide me use cases about 'Flows'. Where all these can be useful.

Any links to some good videos about flows or any other useful links to do hands on 'Flows'.

 

Regards,

Sunil

You can use Visual Workflow for any "screen flow" or "page flow" type of processes. Processes where you want to guide the user through a set of screens while performing logic between them.

Typical use cases are:

Online

    Web self-service guides

    Trouble-shooting wizards
Front office call center

    Customer Support

    Inbound/outbound sales
Back office processing centers

   Insurance: claims processing

   HR: pensionsTax: invoice processing

 

You can also use it to automate any wizards you want where the only way is to write Apex and VF at the moment.

Hi,

 

You can embed flows in VF pages, using this component <flow:interview>


Also, you can call the flows from your details pages, or via custom links, custom buttons as it has a url which means you can call this flow anywhere.

 

Thanks.
