As part of myLightning, Lightning Flow lets you build flows with Lightning components on your screens. You can make your flows a beautiful guided experience by overriding the elements of the flow with design built by your Lightning component. Also, you can now pause your flow and pick it up later, since the person who starts a flow isn’t always the one who finishes it.
