Managing workflows in Shopify Flow

Workflows can be copied, imported, deleted, or exported to share with other merchants or to create a backup copy.

Copy a workflow

Workflows can be copied within your store to create a backup or to edit an existing workflow.

Steps:

  1. From your Shopify admin, go to Apps > Shopify Flow.
  2. Click ... beside the workflow that you want to copy.
  3. Click Copy workflow.
  4. Enter a new name for the copy.
  5. Click Copy workflow.

Export a workflow

Workflows can be exported to share with other merchants or to create a backup copy. Before you export a workflow to share with others, ensure that you remove any identifying or sensitive information, such as email addresses or other contact information. The workflow is exported as a .flow file through your browser.

Steps:

  1. From your Shopify admin, go to Apps > Shopify Flow.
  2. Select the workflows to export.
  3. Click Export workflows.

Import a workflow

Workflows can be imported from other merchants or from a backup copy. Before you enable a workflow that wasn't created by your organization, review it to ensure the following:

  • Email and messaging addresses have been changed to the correct destinations.
  • Message text matches the style and tone of your business.
  • Actions that use messaging services that aren't used by your organization are replaced with actions that send an email.

Steps:

  1. From your Shopify admin, go to Apps > Shopify Flow.
  2. Click Import.
  3. Click Add files or drag a .flow file from your desktop to the Import workflow box.
  4. Optional: Click Preview workflows to review workflows before importing them.
  5. Click Import.

Delete a workflow

You can delete workflows that you no longer need. Deleted workflows can't be recovered. If you think you might need a copy of a workflow in the future, then export a copy before you delete the workflow.

Steps:

  1. From your Shopify admin, go to Apps > Shopify Flow.
  2. Select the workflows to delete.
  3. Click Delete workflows.
