Add A Metafield Value As A Tag in Shopify by Using
Mr. Arigato Task Automator
If you need to set product tags based on metafield values in Shopify, this automation is a big time saver.
You can now import the ".arigato" workflow file you downloaded into the app.
- Open the Mr. Arigato - Task Automator app in your Shopify admin.
- Visit the "Import & Export" page within the app.
- Scroll to bottom and upload your file to import the workflow.
This example automation fires when a product is created or updated. It first checks to see if the metafield has a value set. If so, it also checks to see if the tag is not already set. These checks are both optional but reduce the number of times the automation runs and therefore helps you get the most value out of the app. Finally, this workflow will transfer the metafield value as a tag on the product. This workflow can easily be extended and customized to check for a range of metafield values, or add a tag that is different from the metafield value itself. Calculations can also be performed if needed.
