Can a flow start when a tag is added to an order?

Hi all,

 

Is it possible to start a flow when a tag is added to an order (not to a customer)? I can't see any way to achieve this but I might be missing something.

 

Thanks in advance.

Hi, there isn't yet a trigger for that. When we have the trigger, it will look like "Customer tags added" but for Orders.

 

In the meantime, you could use a scheduled + get data workflow like:

  • Scheduled time trigger - Every hour
  • Get order data (tags:YOURTAG) 
  • For each (using Get order data list)
    • For each item - > Action you want here

Ideally you should remove the tag (or use some other filter in your "Get data" action) so that it doesn't run on the same order twice.

Thanks @paul_n. Is there a rough ETA on an 'Order tags added' trigger?
