Is there a way that I can schedule when products move into a collection? At previous companies, we had staging sites where we could merchandise the categories/collections on the staging site and it would go live with that night's deploy. Is there a way I can do this in Shopify? We have a specific collection page that we want to use for the holidays, but only want to feature one type of product at a time and have them change out at midnight every night. How do I do this without having to get up a midnight every night? Also, the products are already live on the site, so I can't schedule the products to go live.
We have an App that let's you schedule when products should be added to or removed from a collection: https://apps.shopify.com/shopify-assistant
To set it up, create a new 'Add to Collection' task and choose the collection and products, then set the time you want it to run.
Shopify now supports 'Future Publishing': https://help.shopify.com/en/manual/productivity-tools/future-publishing
So I think using product tags you could come up with a solution by creating a smart collection (pulls products based on the tag) and then set the publish date.
@heavens2 so far I haven't found a way to automatically deactivate a product. Seems like a pretty straightforward feature to build.
I've been tooling around with a new app that would help schedule (activate/deactivate) products. I think it would fit nicely alongside Theme Scheduler Pro, an app I built for scheduling theme updates (great for promotions).
Hi sheenav, wanted to reply here and show you an app that might be able to help. I recently launched Product Scheduler Pro which allows you to schedule product pricing, tags, and availability. Although, I don't think it will help you schedule weekly collections as you describe but happy to look into adding that functionality for you!
If that's something you'd be interested in can you email me (email@example.com) so that we can discuss it further?
