With tools like RPA & AI quickly advancing, these types of approaches are becoming more common, however Salesforce has been a bastion at the forefront of what they call “Declarative Programming” for quite some time.
Their tag “Clicks Not Code” was something I tested to its full extent recently, and it proved to be a successful, reliable approach to development.
While the clicks not code method is a great method available for those less inclined to programming languages, that doesn’t mean you don’t have to be prepared to implement development-like methodologies.
In 2018 Salesforce released the Lightning Flow Builder tool, which is an updated version of their previous Flow tool. It has been overhauled to make it easier than ever to create process-oriented logic that can execute based on actions and events. It’s powerful enough to achieve a lot of the same things that a developer would achieve writing apex triggers. This is all done without writing any code, and adding everything with a point or click using pre-built functions in the Flow designer that are drag and drop.
