Why Flow is the way to go

Automation tools are one of the declarative tools in Salesforce that make it more powerful by automating the number of administrative tasks that sales representatives and their managers have to perform manually. There are multiple automation tools to automate business processes of companies: Workflow, Process Builder, Approvals and Flow Builder. The best automation tool depends on the type of business process that you’re automating. Each tool has it own unique features.

Here you can see an overview of the features that are supported in each of Salesforce automation tools. As you can see, Flow is the most comprehensive automation tool available from Salesforce.

TIP! It is recommended to focus on 1 automation tool in your organization rather than using multiple automation tools. Nowadays the “Flow Builder” AKA “Flow” is the way to go and you can almost do everything with it except sending outbound messages.
