3. Mass Actions in Split View:
Split View is great for allowing us to quickly flick between record information within a list, however previously we had to switch back to a List View to perform mass action. With summer 21 release we can now perform mass action from split view.

7. Build Multi-Column Screens in Flow Builder:
In Flow Builder, Now we can use the Section component to easily arrange screen components into multiple columns. We can divide each flow screen into multiple sections and columns to create a nice and effective layout, without writing a single line of code.
8. Debug a Flow with Transaction Details:
Schedule-triggered flows and autolaunched flows that have no triggers can now show debug details like Show Governor Limit Consumption or Show Transaction Boundaries or both.Earlier , you couldn’t debug the flow to see whether transactions were committed during the debug run. Now you can quickly see that after selecting checkbox Show Transaction Boundaries.
9. Use Is Changed operator in the Start in a Record Triggered Update After Save Flow and in Decision Elements:
Now, you can use the new ‘Is Changed’ operator in your condition logic, for Start elements and Decision elements in record-triggered flows. With the ‘ Is Changed ‘‘operator, you can define conditions that check whether certain field values on the record changed is in the current transaction.
10. Find Failed Flows Faster:
Now, if our flows have failed interviews, we can find them all in one place. We can create a custom list view that includes paused and failed flow interviews. Earlier, we used to click a link in a flow error email to start debugging a failed flow interview.
