Flows | Display Clickable Image with URL Link on Screen Flows

Navigate to an URL by clicking an Image in Salesforce Screen Flows. In this post we will see how to add and Display Image on a Salesforce Flow Screen. Also, we will make the Image in Screen Flow Clickable to navigate to a web page or a URL link. We will be first adding Image on a Salesforce Flow Screen and then embed a Link url to it. This will make the Flow Image Clickable to navigate to any URL. We will achieve this clickable image on the Flow Screen without writing any code or adding any Lightning Component.

Display Clickable Images on Flow Screen

To display or show an Image on the Flow Screen which can be clicked to allow users to Navigate to any URL, we will just use display text screen component on a Screen Flow. Display Image option is already available on Display Text Component on Screen Flow and we also have a Link option. We will just combine these two (Image + Link) options to achieve this functionality.

Use Case : A Simple Screen with Images which can be Clicked and take user to an URL. I will use two links one to the home page of this blog https://www.accidentalCoderSf.com and another to the trailhead home page. I will put this on home screen.

Note: I will not show Screen header, Footer and Screen Navigation buttons on this Screen. Only Images on the Screen will be shown.
