[SalesForce] When a record is updated, update related records using flow

I'm trying to use declarative methods to updated related records when one record changes.

The two types of objects are related through a junction object, which means I cannot use a process builder to update the related records.

When I try to use the flow to achieve this, and when I set the flow trigger as "New or updated records—flow makes fast field updates", the "Update records" element is not available.

How can I update junction and related objects when a record is updated using declarative methods?

The 'fast field update' trigger is a "Before Save" trigger in the save order, and as such can't modify other records. It's an unfortunate system limitation. In Summer '20, we'll introduce an "After Save" trigger that allows this.

For now, you can accomplish this in Process Builder.
