The automations tab allows for 24/7 monitoring of products without the risk of banning your proxies. Automations works by using our monitors to monitor products and if the monitors pickup a product that matches your inputted keywords or PID, your tasks will automatically start or be created.
Before setting up automations, make sure all of your quick task settings in "Site Options" are filled in. This ensures that your tasks will function properly when running for sites other then footsites.
Start by navigating to the automations tab.
This is where you want to put the products you want to monitor for. Whether it be PIDs or keywords, this section covers both. You are allowed one monitor input per line (similar to variants). Follow the tabs below on properly formatting monitor inputs.
Variants will not work in automations! Do not use them!
Starting & Stopping
There are three parameters for starting tasks via automations. Only one parameter has to be checked, but you can enable all three.
Start on monitor: starts tasks as soon as Prism's third-party monitor pings.
Start on checkouts: starts tasks after Prism's checkouts surpass your set number of checkouts
Start on carts: starts tasks after Prism carts your set number globally.
Recommended starting & stopping thresholds:
Start after x checkouts:5Start after x carts:5Stop after x minutes of no checkouts:15
You can choose to monitor only a select few sites or all sites at once. Be careful with your keywords/monitor inputs if using all sites as you don't want to pickup the wrong product.
Task Data Section
Under this section, choose your sizes, profiles or profile groups, proxy list, and task quantity per profile.
Monitor Pop Out
The monitor pop-out is a quick and easy way to watch the Prism checkout logs, as well as the monitors. To access the monitor pop-out, click the "Monitor" button near the top-right of Prism.
Checkout Feed: The checkout feed consists of Prism's checkout log and is updated in real time
Monitor: The monitor section consists of the unfiltered shopify section and is also updated in real time.
In both the checkout feed and monitor section, there is a size option and paperclip option. Clicking the size will create a quick task, clicking the paperclip will copy the URL of the product to the clipboard.
