I have an auto launched flow that updates the Status of the Case to be closed when the button is clicked. The flow is like below enter image description here

I am calling the flow through the Detail Page Button using the URL like


With the return URL set after the flow completed it does return back to the Page but the page is not refreshed it just shows old status and when manually do a refresh it shows the Closed status. The flow does update the record but but the page is not being refreshed. How can we handle this


This can be solved using a component from Unofficial SF (which is managed by the SFDC Flow PM)

The component is Update Screen

Add it as the last element of your flow

enter image description here

There's lots of cool stuff at Unofficial SF that makes flows work better and more user-friendly

  • Can you make it a simple screen flow with just a Display Text element?

  • No, I meant a Screen that says something like "You are about to do xxxx, press Next to continue"

I think Adding a Confirmation Screen at the end ("User can click 'finish' which will refresh the flow) and Also Adding a Screen in the beginning with something like "Press Next to Continue" will solve this.
