How can I get notified when a store installs or uninstalls an app?

Monitoring installs and uninstalls of an app or technology is a common use case. Follow these steps to enable notifications on these conditions.

  • Run a search to detect installs of the app or technology that you're interested in. In this example, we'll search for stores that have installed the Product Reviews Shopify app.
    Filter on Product Reviews Installs.
    • If you're interested in monitoring installs of this app, add a filter for the installation date. In the screenshot below, we're only looking at stores that have installed the app since July 1st, 2021.
      Filter on Product Reviews Install Date.
    • If you're interested in monitoring uninstalls of this app, add a filter for the uninstallation date. In the screenshot below, we're only looking at stores that have removed the app since July 2nd, 2021.
      Filter on Product Reviews Removal Date.
  • Now, save the search to a List by clicking the star icon at the top of the search filters. You'll be asked to provide a name for the new List. See the documentation on Lists for more information.
    Save search to List
    Save search to List.
  • Once you've created the List, can click the Watch button to enable email or webhook notifications for new stores that match the search.
