1. What is FlexCard?
Ans:  A Flex Card is like a info-packed block, offering key details and links specific to a context. For instance, an account card could show things like status, priority agreement, and creation date.

2. How do you define the name of your FlexCards?
Ans:  When naming your FlexCards, skip spaces, dashes, or funky symbols. Stick to letters and numbers. Choose either camel case (like “createAccountRecord”) or Pascal case (like “CreateAccountRecord”) for the name. Steer clear of two underscores in a row. Good examples include “createAccountRecord” and “create_Account_Record.”

3. What Data Sources can you use with FlexCards?
Ans:  FlexCards can pull data from various sources, including SOQL Query for Salesforce data, SOSL Search for text-based queries, Apex Remote for Apex Remote calls, Apex REST for Apex REST calls, DataRaptor for Vlocity DataRaptors, REST for standard REST API calls, Integration Procedures for Vlocity Integration Procedures, Streaming API for event streaming in near real time, and Custom for using sample JSON.

4. What’s the scoop on FlexCard Actions?
Ans:  FlexCard Actions are the power moves for launching or updating OmniScripts, navigating, displaying flyouts, firing events, or updating data field values. Check out these available actions:

  • Card: Handles card-level actions like reload, updating data source, and removal.
  • Event:
    • Custom: Fires a Custom Event to alert the parent FlexCard of an occurring event.
    • PubSub: Fires a PubSub Event to notify another component on a page or application.
  • Flyout: Shows extra info from a child card, OmniScript, or custom Lightning web component in a modal or popover.
  • Navigate: Choose a target URL or PageReference type for Lightning Experience, Communities, or an external web address.
  • OmniScript:
    • Launch: Fires up an OmniScript from the FlexCard.
    • Update: Refreshes an OmniScript from a FlexCard embedded as a custom Lightning web component in an OmniScript.
  • OmniScript Action: Launches OmniScripts, components, web pages, or external applications from a reusable OmniStudio Action. One action can launch the same OmniScript from multiple FlexCards.
