Flow Designer needs a simple way to "end" a flow by navigating to a record

Process Automation

If you embed a Salesforce Flow into a Visualforce page, you can use the "finishLocation" attribute to redirect users to a specific screen in Salesforce.

However, if you're calling flow from a custom button or custom link, there is no simple way to cause the flow to end on a specific page.  For instance, if I invoke a flow from a custom botton on an Opportunity record, I would like the process to end on that record's detail page.

It would be great if a "Navigate To URL" option was available in Cloud Flow Designer palette as an "end process" element.  The component would require a single input arg (the record ID or URL that the user wanted the flow to end on), and it would have to be the last step in a process flow.

Implementing this would eliminate the need to build a custom VF page for flow navigation.
