Add draft order tags

The Add draft order tags action adds a tag to the draft order that triggers the workflow.

When you create an order from a draft order, the draft order tags are carried over and added as order tags.


The Add draft order tags action contains the following fields.

Fields used in the Add draft order tags action.
TagsThe tags to add to a draft order. Tags are case sensitive. To add multiple tags, do one of the following:
  • Enter each tag separately by typing the tag, and then pressing the enter key.
  • Enter multiple tags by separating them with commas. Whitespace between commas is removed.

    For example, entering tag1,tag2,tag3 and then pressing enter key results in tag1,tag2,tag3 initially displaying in the action. When the action is taken, three separate tags are added: tag1, tag2, and tag3.


The Add draft order tags action has a hidden field added to it by the trigger. This field, Draft order ID, identifies the draft order to add tags to. The draft order ID is set by default and can't be changed.

The Add draft order tags action can be used in workflows that start with the following triggers:

Common issues

Flow says that it added a tag but the tag isn't available in the Admin.

Reason: an app (typically) or Admin user overwrote the tag. This happens because many apps use the same events, such as Order created, as Flow. Flow often finishes first, and then other apps make edits that don't take into account the new tags.

Solution: the best solution would be for the app to have an action in Flow that you could call after Flow runs. If such an action isn't available, then you should contact the app to ask them how to avoid overwriting your tags. If you can't solve the issue with the app, then you can try inserting a "Wait" step in Flow to delay when Flow adds tags.
