Set the Webflow trigger as “Order placed”

Add the Webflow trigger to initiate your playbook's actions before an order is placed.

To do this, click "Add trigger" in your playbook. Choose the "Order placed" trigger from the Webflow options. It will enable your playbook to automatically identify newly placed orders and trigger necessary actions.

If you have yet to connect your Webflow account to Relay, a prompt will guide you through the connection process.


Add the “Update record” in Airtable step

Integrate the Airtable automation into your playbook to ensure prompt updates for every placed order to a particular table.

To add a step to your playbook, select "Add Step" and look for the "Get record" automation. Then, choose the table you want to work with; for example, let's say you want to work with the "Orders" table. Once you've chosen the table, select an identifier in the "Add filter" from your table data to match the Webflow data. In this example, the identifier is "Customer info".

Afterward, add another step to your playbook by selecting "Update record." Next, click on the relevant fields you want to update and fill in the necessary details, such as Comment, and Purchase items.

If you still need to connect your Airtable account to Relay, you will be prompted to complete that connection. Make sure to allow the necessary permissions for Relay to update records through your Airtable account.


Activate your playbook

Activating your playbook is the final step to automate the tracking of Webflow items via Airtable. Once turned on, it will respond to update Airtable records with new Webflow placed orders without manual intervention.

To enable your playbook, click the toggle button located in the header. It is advisable to perform a test run of your playbook beforehand to ensure all steps work seamlessly together.
