The community also won goodies for the most tweets using #s1devweek hash-tag. Happy to see the developers active participation in the trivia as well as in twitter.

Avoid Duplicate Records Using Flow

In this blog post lets see how to avoid duplicate records in Salesforce using the powerful feature – Flow , As the word says, flow easily flows to fulfill the requirements with ease. ☺  Many think of appexchange solutions and source code to avoid the duplicate record in salesforce, But the method I'm going to explain here is completely different and very simple. It helps you to reduce your code and can easily rebuild for other objects with different field logic with simple clicks. Lets jump into the solution, we will use flow to check duplicate record logic and use apex trigger to initiate the Flow whenever a record is created or updated. Visual Work Flow : [Click] First we will create the Flow to check the duplicate records based on the name and store the result in the variable.

Lets take an example for Account object 1. Go to Setup –> Accounts –> Buttons, Links and Actions 2. Click ‘New Button or Link' 3. Enter  Label, Name and select display type as ‘List Button’ 4. Content source as “Onclick Javascript” and paste the
