Ending events

You can manually stop any event, even those that have a scheduled end, from the Launchpad dashboard.

Shopify Plus

The Launchpad app is available to Shopify Plus merchants only.

When you create an event, you can schedule the date and time for it to end. If you schedule an ending for your event, then it will end automatically at the chosen date and time. If you don't schedule an end, then you can manually stop the event.

To manually end an event:

  1. Open the Event page in the Launchpad app.

    1. From your Shopify admin, Click Launchpad.
    2. Click the event to open it.
  2. Click End event, and then click OK.

Your store will return to the state it was in before the event started with the following exceptions:

  • If your event published products, then these products stay published.

  • Inventories are not adjusted after the event ends.

  • If you chose to use a different theme during your event, then you also chose a theme to use after the event ends. This after-event theme will be applied to your store at the end of the event.

  • If you chose to use specific Shopify scripts during your event, then you also chose scripts to use after the event ends. These after-event scripts will be applied to your store at the end of the event.

To learn more about what changes occur during an event, see Changes that occur before, during, and after an event.
