I am new to flows, trying to delete a field which is referenced in the flow, I have DE-referecned/deleted the field from a screen flow and created a new version of it. Deleted all the inactive old versions.

When I click on "where is this used" button, field still it says referenced in the screen flow. Not able figure out why it still shows the reference.

  • Did you tried something like below. Save As either a new version or new flow and delete the flows that access the field. Then in the new Flow or version remove the reference to the field, delete the old versions.
