Tag orders by the day of the week the order was placed

If you need to tag your orders with a specific tag based on the day of the week that the order was placed, e.g. "Monday", "Tuesday", "Wednesday" etc, then our Order day of the week criteria is what you need.

How to use the criteria

To create a workflow using this criteria, click on the Create NewWorkflow button from the main Workflows view:

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

Example

If you would like to tag orders placed on a Monday, then you'd need to select the is condition and then select Monday from the second dropdown selector:

If you need the workflow to cover multiple days, e.g. either Monday or Tuesday - then you'll need to add another criteria and select the Any of the criteria can match (or) option:

  • Quick Tip: You can use the duplicate icon on your Monday Criteria, then change the day to Tuesday.

Your workflow will then match if the day the order is placed is either a Monday or a Tuesday.

Defining the Tag name

Define the tag name/names that you would like to be applied when this workflow matches your criteria (don't forget to click the Add fixed tag button):

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:

Hit Save and that's it!
