You can now do it directly inside the Data Elements (Get, Create, Update and Delete Elements).


Related Records can be directly updated in Record-Triggered Flows

  3. Check on “Enable App Cloning


  4. Click the drop down → Now you are able to see the Clone option for Custom app.

In the Flow previously we are able to insert only fields in the formula resource. But after the Winter 23 update you will be able to use Logical Functions, Math Functions, Date Time Functions, Operators etc...



Easier Record Resource Creation (Inside Screen Element)

When creating a New Record Resource from the Fields tab, It automatically takes you to the right resource (Variable -> Record) type, previously you had to select the resource type again.


Specify Time Offsets in Months for Scheduled Paths

For each scheduled path in record-triggered flows, you can now choose an Offset Duration of “Months”. Previously your options were “Days”, “Hours” and “Minutes”. 


Field-Level Security using Permission Set

Set Field-Level Security for a Field using Permission Sets Instead of Profiles During Field Creation (Beta)



We need to enable permission in User management settings to use permission sets instead of profiles.

User Management Settings > Field-Level Security for Permission Sets During Field Creation (Beta)

The Custom Report types will show the relation between objects in the form of a venn Diagram.\
