- Activating Flows
- When you activate a new version of a flow, the previously activated version (if one exists) is automatically deactivated. Any running flow interview continues to run using the version with which it was initiated.
- Deleting Flows
- To delete an active flow version, first deactivate it. If a flow has any paused or waiting interviews, it can’t be deleted until those interviews are finished or deleted. Flows that have never been activated can be deleted immediately.
- Flow Properties
- The properties for a given flow’s versions automatically match the active version’s properties by default. In other words, if you have three versions and you activate version 2, Salesforce updates the properties for versions 1 and 3 to match version 2. However, if you edit the properties for an inactive version, that version’s properties are no longer automatically updated to match the active version.
- The flow's active (or latest) version determines the flow's type. For example, if a flow's active version contains a screen, its type is Flow. It can't be implemented through a system-based method, like the Process Builder.
