Post to URL - Pre purchase question

  1. Can I post to a URL with gravity forms. I'd like to know this before I purchase it and I can't find anywhere in your non-member forums.

    Thx

    Mike

  2. Gravity Forms posts to itself because it has to do this to process the form. The form action can't be changed. If you changed the form action you would lose validation and Gravity Forms wouldn't process the form.

    If you need the data submitted by Gravity Forms to be posted elsewhere you would need to use available API hooks and execute custom code when the form is submitted to do whatever you want with the data.

  3. Mike, what are you trying to do specifically? There are hooks that run after the form is submitted and the entry is saved, which is where you can POST your data to a 3rd party. If you post what you're looking for, we can explain how Gravity Forms can help.

    Chris, we need to do the same thing. In our case, we need to post to an external URL on a form-by-form basis to get the form data into a 3rd marketing automation system. The 3rd party system creates a different external post URL per form but Gravity Forms doesn't have a built in place to enter that URL as an alternative form action.
