Tag order based on the time it was created

Being able to identify and tag orders based on the time they were created is an important requirement for many Merchants.

Our Time the order was created criteria enables a simple way to do this.

How to use the criteria

To create a workflow using this criteria, 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.

The Time the order was created criteria can be found within the Other category in the Select criteria pop-up window:

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

You will then be presented with the following screen and options:

The options are simple. Choose Before or After and then the time:

A common way to use this criteria is to use it twice in the same workflow to set before and after limits for the time:

Choose the name of the tag you'd like to see on all orders that match this workflow and enter it into the Add tags when the workflow matches section.

In this example we have used the tag Afternoon:

Saving and naming your workflow

It's worth giving your workflow a name to help you identify it at a later date, so add a workflow name in the New Workflow section, check the summary of your workflow and if happy, either Test your Workflow against an existing order or hit Save Workflow:
