Spotlight on…Rule Filters

When you’re looking to add more automation to your store, the can be used to tell Order Desk how you’d like us to take action on certain orders or order items.

If you want a rule to only run on specific orders or order items, you would use filters to tell Order Desk what to look for. For instance, if you want your rule to only run on orders that contain items with the Item Name “Red Shirt” you would create a filter that looks like this:

Item Name > Equals > Red Shirt

Another example would be if want to make sure your rule only works on orders that are being shipped to one of a specific group of countries, you would use this filter:

Shipping Country > In List > US,AT,HK

Multiple filters can also be used in one rule, and are linked using either AND or OR, which might look like this:

Item Name > Equals > Red Shirt


Shipping Country > In List > US,AT,HK

Those filters would work together and your rule would run on any order where the Item Name is “Red Shirt” and the Shipping Country is either in the US, AT, or HK.

Check out for more info on how you can use filters in your rules.

We wish you a safe, successful, and joyful end of the year. If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to reach out to us by responding to this email or contact .

See you in 2022!
