How long does backdating take to complete?
The time it takes for a backdate to complete depends on three factors:
- The number of orders to be processed
- The number of workflows to be processed
- The type of workflows being applied to your orders
When a backdating process is started, Order Tagger will retrieve all of the orders it needs to perform the backdate before checking each one to see if it qualifies for a rule.
The data required for the majority of tagging workflows can be retrieved via a single call to the Shopify API. This call will return the Order JSON which we can then run your tagging workflows against. However, in the examples below, Order Tagger needs to make a second API call to gather further data to determine if any action needs to be taken on the order:
- Inventory counts
- Product Tags
- Product Type
Below is an estimate of how many orders can be processed in an hour depending on the type of workflows being used.
|Time||Type of workflows||# orders processed|
|1 hour||Single API calls||20,000 p/h|
|1 hour||Multiple API calls||1,500 p/h|
