Screen Flow: Empowers you to create a custom user interface guiding users through business processes. Initiated from Lightning Pages, Experience Cloud, quick actions, and more.

Record-Triggered Flow: Activated on record creation, update, or deletion, handling tasks previously done with Apex triggers.

Scheduled-Triggered Flow: Set to launch at designated times, historically managed by Apex batch jobs.

Platform Event Flow: Activated by incoming platform event messages, useful for segmenting and storing data across objects.

Auto-Launched Flow: Initiated by Apex, Process Builder, or REST API calls.

2. Are you familiar with “Data Skew” in Salesforce?
Data skew, common in large Salesforce organizations, occurs when some records are updated more frequently than others, causing uneven data distribution. Mitigation involves data distribution tools, caching, and proper indexing.

8. What happens if you try to designate a child account as the parent of its parent account in Salesforce?
An error occurs, stating “A parent account can’t be the child of an account it’s already a parent of,” as it violates the hierarchical structure of parent-child relationships.

9. How do you send the Record ID to a Screen Flow in Salesforce?
To transfer the current record’s ID, create a text variable named ‘recordId’ with ‘Available for Input.’
For the entire record, establish a ‘recordId’ variable of Record type, specifying the relevant SObject.
