Lightning Flow Builder – Run Flows That Bypass User Permissions

Allow guest users to create or edit records they don’t have direct access to by setting your flow to run in the system context without sharing.

Lightning Flow – Trigger a Flow to Performs Actions Before/After a Record Save

Creating or updating a record can now trigger a flow that performs actions such as sending an email after the changes are saved to the database.

Lightning Flow – Access Apex-Defined Variables from Outside Flows

Now you can pass values into Apex-defined variables when you launch a flow from a Subflow element, from a Visualforce page, or as an action. You can also access the values of Apex-defined variables as the flow runs or when it finishes. Previously, you could access only variables of other data types from outside flows.

To verify a user’s identity with email, phone (SMS), or Salesforce Authenticator verification, pair the methods—one to initiate a verification service and one to complete the verification service.
