  2. In the Home tab, select Main Flow


  3. As an example, select the Exit step, this step will execute when the Exit button is clicked.


  4. Click on Edit Step

  6. Drag the update command before the finish command


  7. Add the command field as a child command the the update command twice


  8. Click on the update command and in the type box enter the API Name of the Salesforce object to be updated


  9. Next, click on the field command. The first field command should always contain the record id.


  10. The following field command, contains the API Name of the field to be updated in that record. There can be as many field commands as needed.
