Delete A Product And Create A Redirect After A Set Period Of Time in Shopify by Using
Mr. Arigato Task Automator
If you're constantly creating custom products that you need to delete later, this workflow will remove that tedious task from your to-do list forever.
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 automation fires when a product is created. It waits 2 weeks, then it creates a redirect using whatever parameters you choose, such as from the product's original handle (URL) to another URL of your choosing. URLs can be based on tokens or static. It then deletes the product.
This workflow pairs very well with the personalization app, Product Personalizer.
