Remove "new" Tag After A Period Of Time in Shopify by Using
Mr. Arigato Task Automator
This automation listens for a specific tag to be added in your store and removes the tag after a period of time.
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 the app discovers a specific tag, like "new" on a product. Once it discovers the tag, it sets a database value to indicate that the tag has been found. Next, it starts a timer on the product for the length of time you specify. Once the time has passed, the tag is removed from the item. If the tag is added again later, the process starts again.
This example automation can be used for many purposes, such as running a timed sale or featuring products for a short period of time in a collection.
Pro Tips: When configuring this workflow, be sure to set all delays to the same time period, and all tag entries to the same tag. The delays configured in this workflow use Action delays, meaning that single Action is delayed and other Actions are executed immediately. For this reason, each delayed action needs the same delay settings.
