A Flow is a series of processes visually represented by cards on the Workflows Designer canvas. Each card represents a specific action that is completed before progressing to the next step in a Flow.
No actions in a Flow take place unless the Flow itself is triggered by the occurrence of an event. One Event (and only one) must always precede one or more Actions in a Flow. An event is specified in an Event card. Examples of Events:
- A new record is created in Salesforce
- A new email is received in Gmail
- A file is updated in Google Drive
Not all third-party application connectors in Workflows have Event cards.
