Are you looking for an easy way to notify your store admin of new draft orders?

If you use another app to create draft orders, you can configure a notification within Shopify Marketing Automation whenever you have a new draft order.

With these automatic notifications, you no longer have to keep checking your store admin for new draft orders.

Below, you’ll see a step-by-step guide on how to create internal notifications for new draft orders.

The Use Case

On 07-31-2020, KOVIKO posted in the Shopify Forum that he would like Shopify to email store admins when a draft order is generated.

Specifically, KOVIKO shares that they have a third-party app that generates draft orders that store admins can use to contact and quote customers.

Fortunately, with Shopify Marketing Automation, you can configure new draft orders to trigger email notifications to store admins.
