Triggers in the new Flow

Triggers are events that start a workflow. After you select a trigger to start a workflow, you can set actions to take place immediately, or you can set conditions to determine what actions are performed.

Testing workflows

To test a workflow trigger, first verify that the workflow can safely run if a real event occurs while the workflow is active.


  1. Activate the workflow.
  2. Create an event that causes the trigger to start the workflow. For example, if you're testing the Collection created event, then create a collection in the Shopify admin.
  3. Monitor the Activity page to verify that your workflow has run.

For more information on monitoring workflows, refer to Monitoring workflows in Shopify Flow.
