Arigato Automation
Set a product metafield value

Set custom product metafield to "Backorder" or "In Stock" based on inventory level in Shopify by using Arigato Automation

Set custom product metafield based on stock availability, providing transparent inventory status.

The automation is fired every time a product is updated or stock. Once fired, it checks for the current product inventory level. If the inventory level is less than or equal to 0, the app updates the product metafield "custom_stock_status" to "backorder." If the product is in stock, the workflow replaces the "custom_stock_status" metafield with "in stock."

This automation can be used to assist in filtering for products that are in stock and the ones out-of-stock.

ProTip: To effectively implement the workflow, a batch workflow is required, to loop through all the products with the same conditions and actions to set the respective metafield value.

An absolute key app for us. Not only can you select the item/ order/ object you're interested in seeing (and get a full breakdown of the fields contained), but the preview of the information you're testing/ trying to output is essential to ensure an automation runs as intended!

I cannot rave enough about the Arigato automation app - it is an absolute must-have for any Shopify store looking to simplify operations. It has automated so many of our tasks, from sending B2B email notifications and updating customer data to managing inventory, creating custom metafields, updating collections, generating reports, the list goes on & on.
