Final Winter '20 Flow sneak peak: schedule your flows to run at a specific time/interval. We fixed that thing where new resources weren't auto-populated. And, you can now activate flows from inside the builder. For more goodness, see

Not yet. Our validation is still all server-side, so it it doesn't get evaluated until the form is submitted (when Next is clicked). The client-side engine we added for conditions *might* allow us to move validation client-side but we haven't explored that yet.

It's still on my list. We also didn't get through *all* the things that require variables - actions, Create Records, subflows and loops have yet to be done (in that order).

I should really not tweet so early in the morning - I forget stuff.

Oh yeah -- that Lookup component in my demo? That's a new, standard, out-of-box component. It's a Lightning Web Component, and you can use your own custom LWCs in flow screens too!

Maybe this will help: It expects an existing field on an object, so in this example, it's using the AccountId field on the Case object. In the output parameters, Record Id is the id field of the selected record, and Record Name is the Name field of the selected record.

Also, variables are no longer needed to reference screen component attributes - note above that the Toggle value is referenced from {!ChooseAccountManually.value}, just like you'd get field values from a record. (Just for you, 😉)

Flow Winter '20 sneak peak #3: use conditions to control visibility of fields, based on user input in the same (or previous) screens! No more need to use a decision and follow up screens.

More likely a merging of the two, though I don't know when yet.

Oops, I totally forgot - you can also move the start element around the canvas!

As far as I know, Account Team Member is the only new object that's been enabled in Winter '20. Each internal team is responsible for enabling support for their app's standard objects in Process Builder, and Case is a different group.

We don't have a way to pass in anything other than the recordID and literal values from LAB - we don't have access to anything else. But, you can get the user ID inside the flow: create a Formula resource of type Text, and use the {!$User.Id} merge field syntax in the formula.

Winter '20 flow sneak peak #2: account team members in Process Builder! Here's a process that runs whenever an account is created, that adds the account owner to the account team. You can also run processes when account team members are created/edited.

I hear you - I am the same way! We have some ideas around this, and it will likely come with some broader canvas changes that we need to do. It's going to be a multi-release project, but in the end we'll have a number of improvements. (Forward-looking statement, etc.)

I can neither confirm nor deny. You're going to have to wait for further sneak peeks.

Winter '20 prerelease orgs are coming soon, but as usual, I can't wait to share! So here's your flow sneak preview #1: two-line labels on the Flow Builder canvas; no more Pan button/keystroke combo (just click and drag); and Drag Select mode.
