Process Builder vs Flow Builder


Process Builder

Use Process Builder when you need to start a behind-the-scenes business process automatically. Processes can start when:

  • A record is created
  • A record is updated
  • A platform event occurs

Flow Builder

Use Flow Builder to:

  • Automate a guided visual experience.
  • Add more functionality for a behind-the-scenes process than is available in Process Builder. Use Flow Builder to build the more complex functionality. Then call the resulting flow from the process.
  • Start a behind-the-scenes business process:
  • When a user clicks something, like a button
  • When a record is created
  • When a record is updated
  • When a platform event occurs
  • At a specified time and frequency
