I am trying to automate promotions by tagging products but the only 'Start When' is with 'Product added to store'.
I currently have over 1,000 existing products within the database.
Question: Does full product export import triggers 'Product added to store'? How do I initialize newly created triggers?
Many thanks :)

This is an accepted solution.
Adding a product manually, or creating a new product through the API is how the "Product added to store" trigger starts. Unfortunately, it doesn't get triggered when you overwrite products using the import/export function.
In the future Flow may be able to watch for changes on an existing product to start a workflow, but right now that isn't possible (only when a brand new product is added). A workaround you could try is to use the "Inventory quantity changed" trigger. This starts whenever a product's inventory goes up or down. From there, based on the condition you're looking for, you could add the product tags with Flow.
