Send An Email With The Warehouse Location Of Each Product In An Order in Shopify by Using
Mr. Arigato Task Automator
If you need to communicate the locations of items in your warehouse for each order, this automation is for you.
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 an order is placed. It loops over all the items in the order and pulls data points such as the quantity for each item in the order, the name of the item, the SKU for the item and lastly, the item's warehouse location. Since warehouse locations are not supported in Shopify, the automation requires warehouse bin locations be set on each product using metafields. To set this up, first create a metafield then, update your products to include the location as a value on that metafield. Finally, adjust our example workflow so that it looks for your special metafield.
This automation can easily be modified to send this data to a different channel, such as a Google Sheets spreadsheet, a Slack message, a Trello card, or even an SMS message.
