Salesforce has brought us a brand-new component for Lightning pages.

You can also give your Dynamic Related List a useful label, so your users understand what filters have been applied.

Formula Entry Conditions for Record-Triggered Flow 

Salesforce is introducing the ability to trigger a flow based on a formula. If a formula evaluates to true, the flow will run. If not, it won’t be triggered. This new feature will help minimize unnecessary flow executions.
