Zapiet integration overview

The Zapiet integration workflow will allow you to tag your orders using the value of the pick-up, delivery or shipping information from Zapiet.

The information from Zapiet is stored as name:value pairs in the additional details/order attributes section of an order.

Our Zapiet integration workflow will allow you to apply one or all of our supported Zapiet attribute values as tags on your orders, with further flexibility to add a prefix of your choice to the tag, or reformat the date to suit your needs.

The supported Zapiet attribute values are: 

  • Pick-up Date
  • Pick-up Time
  • Delivery Date
  • Delivery Time
  • Shipping Date 

Setting up the tagging workflow

Once you have Zapiet set-up in your Shopify store, navigate to Order Tagger to create the workflow.

Once in the Order Tagger app, click on the Create New Workflow button from the main Workflows view:

Define the trigger to determine at which point you would like the workflow to run, we recommend selecting the trigger when orders are created.

Click the Add criteria to my workflow button:

The Zapiet delivery/pickup date order attribute criteria can be found within the Integration category in the Select criteria pop-up window:

Click the Use in your workflow button to select this criteria.

You will then be presented with the 5 preset Zapiet attributes that you can choose to enable/disable. By default, when adding the criteria, they will all be enabled: 

Enable the attributes whose values you wish to apply as tags on your orders.

Prefixes

When a Zapiet attribute is enabled, you will see that a default prefix has been configured. This prefix will form the first part of your tag. The value of the attribute will form the second part of your tag:

Feel free to edit the prefix or delete/clear it altogether.

Delivery Date: 22/04/2021

Reformatting Dates

If you'd like to change the format of the date that has been assigned as the attribute value, we have a date reformatting utility that will change the date in your tag to a format of your choice.

Just select the check box to enable the reformat:

Select your preferred date format from the dropdown list:

Please note, this will not change the date format of the original order attribute on your order, only the format of the date in the tag that we apply.

All enabled attributes will tag your orders.

If for example, you have enabled the Shipping Date attribute and changed the format of the date to dd/mm/yyyy, the tag applied will be something similar to the following:

Shipping Date: 23/10/2020

Requesting new date formats to be added

We understand that merchants integrate their Shopify stores with many different third-party applications and services. These external systems often require dates in varying formats, even when contained in tags.

If, therefore, you need a date format adding to the list of date formats, then please do just get in touch and we will see what we can do to add it in.

Adding further Criteria to your Zapiet workflow

Once you have set this condition, you can add additional criteria to make the workflow more specific to a particular fulfilment flow.

All criteria that you add to the workflow will need to be met for your selected Zapiet attributes to be applied as tags on the order.

Adding Fixed and Dynamic Tags

Once you have defined all of your criteria you can choose to apply both fixed and dynamic tags to the order, which will be applied in addition to your selected Zapiet attributes:

Don't forget to name your workflow to make it easily identifiable in your workflows list:

Hit Save and you are done!

Applying a delay to you Order Tagger workflows

Zapiet and Order Tagger both make updates to orders when the order has been created. This means that in some scenarios, the updates might clash and one app could override the other apps update. 

For this integration to run smoothly, we recommend setting a 1-minute delay for Order Tagger to process your workflows. This will allow enough time for Zapiet to add the delivery information to the order before processing your Order Tagger workflows.

To apply a delay to Order Tagger workflows, navigate to Settings and check the Delay tagging option:

That's it!
