Order Desk is finally having a company retreat for the first time since before the global pandemic. We’ve hired 14 people since then (tripling our company in size!) and the majority of us have never even met in person!

Before I can put my toes in the sand, I’m going to loop you in on our updates!

Spotlight on…Rule Sequences

If you find that your rules aren’t running as smoothly as you’d like, one of the first things to examine is your rule sequences.

Rules run in the exact order in which they appear under each event. Taking a look at the screenshot below, you can see a rule to add a free gift to orders within the US and a rule that changes item prices are running after orders are submitted to Gelato for fulfillment:

With this set up, orders are going to be sent for fulfillment without the necessary changes rules one and two create. That means customers missing out on their free gift item or your records are not reflecting additional costs!

The good news is that there is an easy fix! Simply drag and drop the rules into the correct order:

If you’re ever unsure about the sequence you’ve created for your rules, give us a shout and someone on our support team will take a look!

Switching Gears

I’m off to find elote and margaritas, but if you’re seeking assistance from us or just want to say “¡Hola!” you can send an email over to We’ve still got your back even while we’re team building in the sun. 😊
