You will be able to build workflow diagrams on the Salesforce.com platform and perform complex logic. Individuals who have created workflow diagrams in other applications (e.g., Microsoft Visio) will feel very comfortable using these two tools from Salesforce.

What if you could take back that control and not rely on a developer or consultant? With two new technologies—Process Builder and Visual Workflow—introduced onto the Salesforce.com platform, you can accomplish much of what was normally handled with Apex code. Lightning Process Builder and Visual workflow both allow for advanced logic that standard configuration such as Salesforce.com Workflow cannot do. Salesforce.com Lightning Process Builder and Visual Workflow details how these technologies can be used to: Create a call center application that guides operators through a call with screens that change based on the caller’s responses. Automatically submit approvals to speed up and streamline your business. Update related records for any object being modified, including standard and custom objects.
