Display Flow / Process Builder validation errors on screen for user

Process Builders & Workflow

When a Process Builder flow fails to execute, the end user receives a useless on screen error. Many times the flow fails to execute due to validation, and the user just thinks it's some sort of system error since the messaging is very poor.

In the exception emails an admin/developer receives when the flow fails there is typically a fairly clear indication of what went wrong, and validation conflicts are always evident.

Having this information available to the end user not only helps them troubleshoot the error and potentially resolve it on their own, but also helps in communication between end user and Admin/Developer to resolve quickly.

This relates to other ideas around showing the flow ID on the PB so we can identify what flow caused the error.
