User munawirrahman over on Medium posted a neat Invocable that makes use of the ‘FuzzyWuzzy’ algorithm to compare the similarities between two text strings in Flow. Check it out

Continuing his work in Flow Benchmarking (Salesforce Record Automation Benchmarking by Luke Freeland), Luke has done some more interesting benchmarking with performance data on forcing Flow to store all fields in the new ‘Get All Fields’ feature. Interesting stuff and worth considering when forcing Flow to truly store all of the fields in a record […]
Over on my new blog Declarative Ninja I’ve made a video on on how I built a dataloader ‘on guardrails’ where you can take a CSV file and perform mass DML in a controlled environment via Flow. Check it out!
Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you what might be one of my favorite new actions: The Mass Transactor Action! We at CapTech Consulting looked for the most impactful action for both our clients and the community, and decided it would be extremely powerful to enable Flow to run Creations, Updates, and Deletes of records […]
Update on 9/2/20: RecalculateFormulas – New Action Coming Soon The original recalculate formulas action posted last week actually required a text collection of field names. I went ahead and created a new action that is a bit simpler to use – this new action now just takes an input collection and outputs a collection with […]
With the advent of System-context screen flows I can’t help but think of the famous phrase ‘With great power comes great responsibility’. When running screen flows in system context, you could inadvertently grant Read or Edit access to a critical system field to the wrong audience. Let’s say you wanted to do some cool stuff […]

AddQuotesToFields Sandbox Install Link Source Code (coming soon to the UnofficialSF repo) I strongly recommend you reading up on Salesforce […]
Update 5/18/20 The ‘Dedupe Fields From Record Collection‘ action is being retired and the functionality is now being moved into the CollectionsProcessors ‘ExtractFieldsFromCollection’ action: Ragan Walker added several improvements to the action: Parameterizes dedupeValues functionality (defaults to true) You can now output to a comma-separated text variable instead of just a text collection variable Supports extracting + deduping […]
Ragan Walker and I over at CapTech Consulting have been hard at work at an insanely useful Generate CSV invoked action for you all. I consider this the inverse of Narender Singh’s ‘Create Records from CSV‘ action. We built this to fully utilize some of UnofficialSF’s awesome custom actions like ExcecuteSOQL, Send Rich Text Email, […]
I recently started trying out the relatively new Custom Notification action today and wanted to share my thoughts on two head scratcher inputs. Check it out I call out the Collections Processor package here on UnofficialSF One neat little combo would be utilizing some of the invoked actions found on UnofficialSF.com. You could use the […]
