Hi - I'm new to Shopify dev but not to dev. There's an app my client is using that's close to perfect but not perfect for them. It has settings related to date that need to be manually changed at specific times. I'd like to automate that.
Is there a way to automate app settings changes according to a schedule? Can this be done via API or Shopify scripting?
I've contacted the developer to ask the same question, but they're time shifted and it's a free app so don't want to put all my eggs in that basket. Would greatly appreciate anyone pointing me in the right direction!
Hi Scotty - Sure. Here's my real world example, using Mageworx's Delivery Date & Time Suite (https://appstore.mageworx.com/docs/deliverydate/).
Their app has most of what I want, but I'd like more configuration of delivery date options and time cutoff. Here's what I'm trying to do:
I can create those options right now, but only by manually changing two app settings: "processing order period" and "maximum delivery dates." Like on Tuesday at 9:00 p.m. I'd change max delivery dates from 2 to 1, and "processing order period" from 1 to 2. Idea being to create my own delivery date cutoffs in this manner.
I messaged with the developer, who's very responsive, but they've said "it's impossible to automate this process with scripts or server requests."
