How to set up back in stock SMS+Email flows on Klaviyo
Swym now supports back in stock alerts to be sent by SMS, through an integration with Klaviyo, for select merchants.
Once you have enabled the Klaviyo-Swym integration, chosen the triggers and set up the UI, you need to configure the flows on Klaviyo for the emails to start getting sent.
Read on for a quick walkthrough of how you can get this done with ease. For more information on Klaviyo flows, click here.

Configuring SMS+Email flows on Klaviyo for Swym Back in Stock Alerts:
Log in to your Klaviyo account and click on the ‘Flows’ section.
Then click on ‘Create Flow’, and choose ‘Create from Scratch’
Type in the name you’d like to identify the flow by, and click on ‘Create Flow’
Click on ‘Metric’ from the left hand side of the menu
Search for ‘Swym’ under the ‘Choose metric’ section and choose the trigger you want to set up. There are 3 triggers available to you:
Back in stock alerts – This will trigger alerts to subscribed customers when the product is back in stock. To configure this flow, choose Swym-backinstock
Back in stock reminder alerts – This will trigger a reminder alert, after the first back in stock alert is sent. To configure this flow, choose Swym-backinstockReminder
Back in stock acknowledgement – This will trigger a subscription confirmation alert, informing the customer that their request for an alert is registered. To configure this flow, choose Swym-remindMe
If you are not able to see the above metrics, ensure that you have completed the ‘Send trigger to Klaviyo’ step (last point under 1.6 in our help document).
