The new Flow checker feature will promote higher quality flows by ensuring you follow best practices. By running the checker, you will be able to get answers to questions like: which areas of my flow implementation pose a performance or reliability risk?

For each issue identified, the Flow checker points to specific occurrences within the flow where improvements may be required. And more importantly, you learn how to implement these improvements by following detailed guidance.

To begin, the Flow checker appears in the command bar in the designer and will show a red dot when one or more errors are identified in your flow.

Select this button to open the checker. If there are errors in the flow, the checker opens when you try to save it. Once the checker opens, it shows all errors and warnings in your flow. Inside each section, the checker calls out the actions where the error or warning occurs.

If you need more details to fix an error, select the row to receive additional guidance. The Flow checker is now starting with some basic scenarios, but look forward to more guidance being added over the coming months.
