When I add a collection set to automated and select Product Tag the condition dropdown only lets me select "is equal to" all the other items are grayed out and unselectable. I need to choose "is not equal" Is there something I'm missing?
When it comes to the product tag you are only able to select 'is equal to'. This is the indended behavior of the system. This is because product tags are analyzed as a whole. So conditions such as "contains, greater than, etc" are not applicable to this condition type. This also goes for the condition "is not equal to".
Perhaps you can expand a bit further on exactly what you are trying to filter in/out of your collections so I can suggest a conditions setup that will work for you!
For example: Let's say you were selling Jeans and offered them in sizes (S, M, L) and color (Red, Blue, Green). Now let's say you wanted to create a collection that only shows your Red Jeans that come in a size small. What you can do is create a collection condition that is set to meet 'All Conditions' instead of 'Any Condition'. Then you can create two Product Tag conditions. One for 'red' and one for 'small'. Then you would tag the products that you want in this collection with a 'small' and 'red' tag. This would create a collection that shows just red jeans that are small. Without the need for a 'does not equal' condition.
Let me know if this helps! If there is anything else I can help you with, please let me know.
I think our app Advanced Collections - https://apps.shopify.com/advanced-custom-collections - can help, it has the option to include and exclude products based on tags (i.e. equals, starts with, ends with and contains) and other criteria (e.g. exclude if price < compared at price).
Feel free to try it out as there is a 7-day trial =)
In order to use the "is not equal to" or any of the other greyed out selections, you have to install Shopify's "advanced collection" app for $5.99 a month. This feels like extortion... because the menu is already there and we SHOULD be able to use it without yet another app. That's just my 2 cents.. or rather, my $5.99 a month.
We want to be able to make a discount codes for all products, excluding products from a specific collection.
All products in the collection we want to exclude have the same tag, so if it would be possible to exclude specific tags, that would work too.
We see two different options; either to exclude tags / collections when creating the discount codes OR
to create a collection for all products excluding products with that tag, and then make a discount code for this new 'discount collection'.
Seems like none of these are possible, do you see a work-around?

I do have a situation where I have a product type from various vendors & would like to have a collection based on a certain criteria. Unless I have a product type assigned , I end up having for the criteria products with various product types.
a. it would be good to enable the collection conditions and offer flexibility so that I can upfront exclude some tags
b. is there any easy bulk edit option to assign product type ? I have over 300 products and its not an efficient way to do it manually
