Flow Elements Each element represents an action that the flow can execute. Examples of such actions include reading or writing Salesforce data, displaying information and collecting data from flow users, executing business logic, or manipulating data.
Flow Resources Each resource represents a value that you can reference throughout the flow.
Cross-Object Field References in Flows When building a flow, you can reference fields for records that are related to the values that are stored in an sObject variable. To do so, manually enter the references.
Flow Connectors Connectors determine the available paths that a flow can take at run time. In the Cloud Flow Designer canvas, a connector looks like an arrow that points from one element to another.
Flow Operators Operators behave differently, depending on what you’re configuring. In Assignment elements, operators let you change resource values. In flow conditions and record filters, operators let you evaluate information and narrow the scope of a flow operation.
Flow Event Types Event Type drives the fields that you use to define an event in a flow Wait element. The available event types are both alarms, which consist of a date/time value—the base time—and an optional offset from that time.
Flow Types A flow or flow version’s type determines which elements and resources are supported, as well as the ways that the flow can be distributed.
Flow Properties A flow’s properties consist of its name, description, interview label, and type. These properties drive the field values that appear on a flow or flow version’s detail page. The properties of a flow and its flow versions are separate.
