I hope everyone had a great time at Dreamforce – overflowing to the brim with lots of information, inspiration, and excitement to continue your learning after Dreamforce’18?! For my friends – who didn’t get a chance to attend the Dreamforce in person – here is an article summarizing Key takeaways from Dreamforce 2018!
At this Dreamforce, I had an opportunity, and honor, to share the stage with Alex Edelstein – Sr. Director – Salesforce.com, Inc – to present a session on Extend Lightning Flow with Lightning Components.
At the event, I gave a demo of how one can use Lightning components in the Salesforce Flow. In the demo, I used one Flow resource – Stage (Basically a Progress Bar/Path). After the session, many attendees asked me how did I build the path? So, I am writing this article to explain just that!
What is a Stage Resource in a Flow?
You can use the Stage resource to show progress through the flow screen element. It is also possible to reference the stages in flow logic. For example, in a partner registration flow, the stages are Tell us about yourself, Tell us about your company, Upload document, and Confirmation.
By default, standard, out-of-the-box Flow runtime, does not show a flow’s stages. But, you can add a custom Lightning component to visually represent the stages. Thanks to Salesforce.com Inc, the developer team for providing sample code (Lightning) to build a Progress Bar article – by so doing, they made your, and my, job very easy!
