    • Hi, i wouldn’t just see flow as a direct replacement for SPD, it is many times better and more flexible. Yes some if the actions available before might not be there, but you can do it all and a lot more without too much effort. Flow isn’t just for automating some small steps. It is both for small and large flows. It simply gives you a no code automation tool.
