An app's application logic is defined on the Microflows and UI Flows build pages.
To open these pages, go to Application Logic > Microflows, or Application Logic > UI Flows.
The Application Logic section of the App Builder navigation menu:
Microflows are triggered by record events or timers, and run asynchronously on the backend with full system privileges. They deal mainly with data, and with connections to external systems. Flow records and parameters can be defined.
UI flows are triggered by UI events, and run for a single user on the client side, blocking the UI while running. They deal mainly with user interactions, and cannot connect with external systems. Flow records and parameters are not available.
