Change product availability status (Pre-order, Purchasable) based on inventory level

Automatically change product availability to pre-order status when products are out of stock and switch back to normal purchase status when products are back in stock.


When you have a best-seller product and it runs out of stock, you’ll want to change this product’s status to pre-order so that you can have some time to arrange the stock while not wasting demand for it. Meanwhile, stakeholders such as Marketing team is supposed to get notifications to work on marketing campaigns, or Purchasing team needs advised to contact suppliers. With Atom8, all these tasks can be executed in just one simple workflow.
