#1MinuteTip In Salesforce Flows, Scheduled Path in Record-Triggered Flow and Schedule-Triggered Flow – they both allow you to schedule actions that should be executed at a point in time in future.
However, one of main differences between the two is that with scheduled path, you have more granular control on when the action will be triggered. Like you can set the scheduled path to execute <x> minutes/hours/days/months “before” or “after” a specific time source.
With scheduled triggered flow, you can schedule to run it only on a daily/weekly basis at a fixed time. So, this is more restrictive and less flexible in this regard.
