#1MinuteTip #SalesforceWinter24 Use the new Custom Error Message element to create targeted error messages for your end users to explain what went wrong or how to correct it. The error messages display in a window on the overall record page or as an inline error on a specific field. The associated record change is rolled back.
Business Use Case
This feature is particularly useful as it allows you to perform complex validations in Flows, assess the outcomes using the “Decision” element, and then display a “Custom Error” message if the validation fails. Salesforce will automatically roll back changes to the record after displaying the error message. Previously, you would have needed to write an Apex trigger to perform such complex validations.
Please refer to the blog post “Step by Step Guide to “Custom Error” in Record-Triggered Flow” (link below) on how to configure this in your Salesforce Org.
