Enable Shopify Flow to update product template based on tags or types.

This should not be something that I should have to do manually. Chat GPT wrote this instruction manual, if only it was possible to work... 


  1. Install Shopify Flow:

    • Go to the Shopify App Store and install the Shopify Flow app if you haven’t already.
  2. Create a New Workflow:

    • In your Shopify admin, go to Apps and then Shopify Flow.
    • Click on Create workflow.
  3. Set Up the Trigger:

    • Add a trigger by selecting Product created or Product updated. This will trigger the workflow when a product is created or updated.
  4. Add a Condition:

    • Add a condition to check the product type. Click on Add condition and choose Product type.
    • Set the condition to match the specific product type you want to assign a template to (e.g., "Clothing").
  5. Add an Action:

    • Add an action to update the product template. Click on Add action and select Update product.
    • In the action settings, set the Template suffix to the template you want to assign (e.g., product.clothing).
  6. Save and Enable the Workflow:

    • Name your workflow (e.g., "Assign Clothing Template") and click Save.
    • Enable the workflow.

Thanks! For now I'm using the mechanic app to do this. I do feel that it should be a native feature though.
