Shopify Flow

To use Shopify Flow at the store level, download the Flow app from the Shopify App store.

To create these automations, you choose triggers, conditions, and actions.

Triggers are events that run in a store or in an app, such as an order being created or a customer being added to an app.

Conditions make sure that your workflow runs actions only when certain conditions are met.

Actions are tasks that can make changes to objects in your Shopify store as well as in apps.

Trigger - Start a workflow from an event in Shopify or from an app. Condition - Set conditions that determine if a workflow should run. Action - End a workflow with a task actioned in a store or app.

Flow at the organization level

If you have Flow organization-level access, then you can perform the following actions across all the stores in an organization with Flow:

  • create and edit workflows
  • enable workflows in stores without needing to install the Flow app
  • copy workflows directly from one store to another

This access lets users manage workflows for any store, without needing to log in to each store individually.

If you want to give users access to Flow for a specific store only, then you can install the Flow app in that store and grant them store-level access to the app, rather than organization-level access to Flow.

Because Flow is available at the organization level, uninstalling the Flow app on a specific store doesn't automatically disable workflows for that store. To stop workflows from running on a specific store, you need to turn off these workflows manually. You can do this in either your Shopify admin using the Flow app before uninstalling the app, or in the Shopify organization admin on the Flow page.
