Order Tagging - Products Shipped From X Location

Hey everyone,

 

Shopify Support haven't been able to help and suggested that I try this forum.

 

Scenario:

My inventory is stored in 2 locations, HQ and 3PL. Orders containing multiple items will either be dispatched from one location or be split across the two.

 

Workflow Requirements:

I want the workflow to automatically tag all orders where the location of at least one product is at 3PL.

I've played around with a few of the conditions (check if name includes.. is at least one of) but they don't seem to work.

 

I've just updated the workflow to 'equal to' but I'm not able to verify this until a new order comes in that needs to be dispatched from 3PL.

 

I guess my question is would 'equals' solve my issue? Or would it skip out the orders that have multiple products shipped from HQ and 3PL?

 

Additional note: tagged orders feed into a new view in the Orders tab so that the 3PL can double check outstanding orders.

 

Any insights much appreciated! Shopify Supported have also directed me to this resource but I'd ideally like to resolve using native apps.

This is an accepted solution.

This template shows how to tag an order based on fulfillment location:

You shouldn't use order created because the fulfillment locations are not assigned right when the order is completed.
