Tag A Product When Inventory Runs Low in Shopify by Using
Mr. Arigato Task Automator
Create a sense of urgency by automatically tagging products with low stock.
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 workflow fires when a product's inventory level changes. It checks to see if the inventory is less than 5. If it is, and the product hasn't already been tagged, it adds a "limited quantities" tag. It also removes the tag when the quantity goes back up over 6.
The automation is completely configurable, so you can set what stock level you want as the threshold and set whatever tag or tags you want to show and remove from the product. Additionally, you could add the product to a special collection, set a metafield value, or take other actions, like sending yourself an email, creating a Trello card or sending a Slack message to include notifications as part of the action.
