Monitoring workflows in Shopify Flow

After a workflow runs, you can monitor its performance and behavior. To review your workflow performance, from the Shopify admin go to Apps > Shopify Flow > Run history. The Run history page lists all your workflow instances. You can also open a workflow and see runs in the Run history section.

Finding a workflow run

Considerations for finding a workflow run:

  • If the time zone on your device is different than your store's time zone, then the date and time for a workflow run might be inaccurate. Factor this difference into the Time filter that you use.
  • In high volume stores, you might need to use a narrow time range and other filters to make it easier to find a specific workflow run.
  • Workflow runs are stored for only 7 days after the run completes.
  • There might be a delay between when a workflow runs and when its results appear on the Run history page. If the results for a recent workflow aren't available yet, then wait a few minutes and try again.

To find a workflow run, use the Time filter.


  1. On the Run history page, click the Time filter in the search toolbar.
  2. In the From field, enter a date and time that is equal to the time that the event should have happened. For example, for an Order created trigger, use the time that the order was created. Ensure that you enter the correct AM/PM.
  3. In the To field, enter a date and time that is 10 minutes after the From date and time.
  4. Review the search results. Workflows typically run at exactly the same time as a triggering event or shortly afterwards. Click a result that matches the time and verify that the displayed resource matches the resource that you're looking for, such as the order.

Viewing the details for a workflow run

To see detailed information about an individual workflow, click the workflow name.

The Status section indicates whether the workflow was completed.

The Actions section indicates how many actions in the workflow were succesfully run. For the full list of actions and whether they were taken, click on X actions succeeded.

The Run details section displays a preview of the workflow.

  • A green symbol represents conditions that were met and actions that were taken.
  • A gray symbol represents conditions that weren't met and actions that weren't taken.
  • A blue symbol represents a workflow that's been paused by using the Wait action.

Example of a run log for a workflow that adds customer tags based on a customer's lifetime spending

In this example, a customer places an order that brings their total amount spent in the store to $976.48. The Order created trigger starts the workflow and checks the total amount spent. The total amount spent isn't equal to or greater than $1000, so the workflow proceeds to the next condition. The next condition, greater than or equal to $700, is met. The workflow takes the action Add customer tags and adds the Silver Tier tag to the customer's profile.

Following the workflow preview, a results section provides additional details.

  • The Started when... section indicates the trigger that started the workflow.
  • The Checked if... section indicates the conditions that were checked and whether the conditions were met.
  • The Did this... section indicates the actions that were taken by the workflow.
  • The Results section displays the following information, accompanied by date and time:

Monitoring workflows that use the For each action

Workflows that include the For each action repeat actions several times. Because of this, the following is true for the Run history page for workflows that contain a For each action:

  • The Status and Action sections apply to all the actions taken by the For each action.
  • The Run details section, including the preview of the workflow, apply only to the last action that the For each action has taken.
