Salesforce Flow Naming Convention

One of the things I’ve learned over the years of writing code, is that following a good naming convention makes my life so much easier.  Consistency is good as it allows me to more quickly identify what I’m working with and find common items.  It simply makes life easier.

When I started using Salesforce Flow, I struggled for a bit as I wasn’t sure how to approach this idea of a naming convention for Flow.  I did a little digging to see what others had done.  I then pulled together what I felt was a couple of good options.  The images below represent what I’ve found to be quite effective.

It’s not important that my naming convention be followed as much as you find what works for you.  Be consistent.  You’ll find it will save you much heartache later.  Your work will appear more professionally written and others will more quickly be able to understand your flows.

Hope you found this tip helpful.
