As we know that custom notification can be send using process builder. Process builder will not work in below cases.
- To send a notification to admin about the batch class completion without sending e-mail
- To build some complex notification delivery using trigger.
- To send notification when APEX API is successfully executed.
We will build the use case to send notification to the Submitter when the batch job is complete
Step 1: Create a Auto Launch flow from flow builder and drag the action on the canvas.
Step 2: Configure the action by choosing the Notification Category as mentioned in below screenshot.
Step 3: Configure the input variables for each required value. Make sure that for the Recipient Id the variable type should of string collection.
Step 4: Create a Batch Class as below to send notification once batch class is successfully completed.
Step 5: Once the batch class is completed a notification will be displayed in to bell icon.
