Salesforce is a CRM (customer management system) and a web service used all over the world.
Although it is a web service, it has a certain degree of customizability, and many companies use it for purposes other than sales.
And Salesforce has a "flow" that automatically executes a specific process.
It is a convenient function that can automatically execute various processes, such as creating related child records when creating business negotiation records, sending emails after recording sales activities, and so on.
However, when I try to change this flow, I can't press the save button.
Why can't I save the flow?
Therefore, this time, I will explain about "Save button is disabled in Salesforce Flow Builder".
Save button is disabled in Salesforce Flow Builder
First of all, what is the phenomenon that the save button of the flow is disabled in Salesforce and cannot be saved?
Open "Settings" in Salesforce, click "Flows" from the settings menu to display a list of flows, and edit an existing flow from among them.
Then "Save" button becomes gray and cannot be pressed as shown below.

Why can't the flow be saved?
How should I update the flow in this state?
Why is the flow's save button disabled in Salesforce and we can't save it?
The reason why the save flow button in Salesforce is disabled and cannot be saved is because an enabled flow cannot be overwritten.
An activated flow cannot be overridden in Salesforce.
So how can we update the flow?
Updating a flow means "saving the flow as a new version".
If you press the "Save As" button instead of the "Save" button, the following screen will appear.

You can save as another version of the same flow instead of another flow like this.
So if you save it in another version and activate it, it will be updated.
Today, I explained about "Save button is disabled in Salesforce Flow Builder".
The reason why the save flow button is disabled in Salesforce and cannot be saved is an enabled flow cannot be overridden.
To update the flow, you can save it as a new version of the flow from the "Save As" button.
