Alternative Form Action - Post to CRM

  1. Hello,

    We would like to part ways with CformsII in hopes of finding an equally powerful albeit more user friendly solution for form building.

    We just bought a GF license and have begun testing the functionality. From a user friendliness perspective everything seems far superior with GF but there seems to be one very meaningful deficiency that we must resolve before we decide to adopt this as a platform for our web forms. With Cforms we are able to post the collected form data to an external URL which allowed us to have our form submissions post straight into our CRM. Email notifications are nice but they are not practical for higher volume.

    I see how there are a bunch of WP plugins that integrate with GF to post into some specific CRM systems such as HighRise however we use QuickBase for which there is no plugin.

    I know you have a very large community of users. If anyone can share a way for us to easily post a Gravity form to a specific URL, we sure would appreciate the information.

    By the way, I came across an older post from 2011 that mentioned that GF would lose all of its field validation capability if it were to post out but I wonder why that wouldn't be the case with CFII?

    Thanks in advance for any assistance.

  2. The gform_after_submission hook can be used to send data anywhere after you collect it: http://www.gravityhelp.com/documentation/page/Gform_after_submission

    If you really want an alternative form action to bypass Gravity Forms on submission, you can use gform_form_tag: http://www.gravityhelp.com/documentation/page/Gform_form_tag
