Play by Play: Breaking Salesforce Flows for Better Design

by Don Robins and Jorgan Strathman

In this course, discover common errors resulting from Process Builders and Flows. You'll join a discussion of the limits of these tools and benefit from design standards that will improve your own approach to declarative automation in the future.

What you'll learn

Play by Play is a series in which top technologists work through a problem in real time, unrehearsed, and unscripted. In this course, Play by Play: Breaking Salesforce Flows for Better Design, Jorgan Strathman and Don Robins discuss how to make Processes and Flows more robust by adopting a developer’s “clean code” approach. Along the way, you'll see a deliberate break in a Process, showing how to debug common automation errors and expose declarative vulnerabilities. Then, given a set of business requirements, you'll explore a workshop and develop a new automation solution using these tools. Finally, you'll learn how a test-driven approach to declarative automation can prevent common runtime issues. By the end of this course, you'll have a solid understanding of how to debug, troubleshoot, and apply better design to your own Processes and Flows.
