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.
