How can I create a flow that the Account owner would automatically follow the account record in chatter regardless of which user created the record.

If this is not possible can it be done using Apex. Any sample code would be much appreciated!

  • Is this still an open question?

I don't know if what you want can be achieved via flow, but it can via Apex, using the EntitySubscription object.


EntitySubscription follow = new EntitySubscription(
    ParentId = accountToFollow.Id, SubscriberId = accountToFollow.OwnerId
insert follow;
