Returned data

The Sum action itself doesn't take any direct action in your store. Instead, it calculates data from your store and makes this data available for use in subsequent steps in your workflow.

When you add a Sum action to a workflow, steps that follow this action have a Sum variable available in the variable picker. To use the data extracted by your query in following conditions or actions, select Sum in the Returned data section of the configuration panel. For custom created variables, use the Sum object.
