Hi all, running into a bit of a technical problem here and checked the forum to see anyone had similar challenges but I guess mine is unique but Im pretty sure it’s simple!
Context: monitoring product stock availability. different sizes. sizes block will show up as black and clickable when in stock, and grey and un-clickable when out of stock. I am trying to monitor M for when it comes back in stock.
attaching a screenshot here.
Any advice on configuration is appreciated!

Hello @sammydepthphoto, monitoring availability of sizes is a common use case. Following post shows a solution for A similar technique can be used to monitor product availability for

To summarize it, there are two methods:

  1. First one is to monitor a filtered list of available items. Any change to that list will trigger an alert. Adding a condition for the desired size will trigger the alert only when that size is added to the list of available sizes. If you can share the page’s URL, I can share a selector that can do that.

  2. The second method is to track changes to HTML using innerHTML or outerHTML property of monitored element. It works because HTML is used to show a size as available (black) or unavailable (gray).

Try it out and feel free to reach out if you need any help.

Hello - I have am trying to accomplish a very similar task, although mine is slightly different in that I want to monitor the availability of a custom pair that I designed. I don’t have the technical knowledge to know if distill can reference the saved shoe design and also tell me if it’s in stock. My goal is find out when size 11.5 comes back in stock. I select the size element but there doesn’t seem to be anything for me to edit. Any tips?
