Step 2 Store a Record ID to serve as input

The "Direct Process" flow action needs a Record ID to serve as input for the action. For example, store an ID in a variable, or collect it from a screen flow.

Step 3 Use the "Direct Process" flow action

1. From the Elements section, drag a new Action to the screen from the Toolbox on the left side.

2. In the New Action dialog, search for "Process record via Direct Processing". 
3. At "Label", define a name for your action. If the API name is not set automatically, make sure an API name is defined as well. 
4. At "Set Input Values", make sure to insert a Record ID. 
5. Optional: At "Async", decide if you want to process the duplicate synchronically or a-synchronically. By default, the record is processed sycnrhonically. 

If you want to process the records a-synchronically, make sure to switch the toggle to include the Async option. As a value, enter a Global Constant set to true. 

6.   Click Done.

Step 4 Connect your actions to the start trigger

Make sure your actions are connected to the start trigger.
