This automation is fired every time a product is sold. It checks to see if any of the variants have been back-ordered by evaluating its inventory level. Suppose any of the variants have a stock level below zero. It adds a "pre-purchase" tag. Once restocked, the variant removes the tag. 

The workflow provides an easy tool for monitoring pre-ordered items. The advises the team on the products that need restocking. 

Pro tip: For the automation to work, you need to have the variant inventory policy set to continue selling when the inventory level hits zero.
