Run Workflows Directly from Shopify (On-Demand)
On-Demand workflows in Arigato allow you to run selected items through a workflow whenever you wish, rather than using a triggered event, such as an order being placed.
Please note, Arigato's On-Demand feature is limited to Shopify objects that support the "More actions" app integration point. The integration currently includes Orders, Draft Orders, Customers, Products, Variants and Collections.
Create an On-Demand Workflow
To get started, first create a workflow and select the On-Demand trigger type, then set up your workflow as usual.
Trigger Your Workflow from the Shopify Admin
Once your workflow is ready to use, you can trigger it from within Shopify.
Heads up! The workflow must be enabled otherwise it will not appear in the steps below.
Triggering For One Item
Visit the corresponding object type in Shopify. For example, if your workflow was created for Products, visit a product in the Shopify admin. Next, click on the "More actions" menu. Finally, click on "Run Arigato Workflow".
Triggering For Multiple Items
Visit the corresponding object type's search page in Shopify. For example, if your workflow was created for Products, visit the All Products page in the Shopify admin. Next, click on the "Actions" menu. Finally, click on "Run Arigato Workflow".
Note, Shopify does not allow more than one page worth of items to be selected in this manner. For larger selections, use a Bulk Operation workflow instead.
Running On-Demand Workflows
Regardless of the selection method, all on demand workflows use the same next steps.
Click "Run Workflow" in the app.
Then, if your workflow includes Variables, enter them now.
Lastly, confirm the changes.
