Re-Process a form

  1. Hello, I want to use Aweber Addon with Gravity Forms.

    But, the form I'm making needs to "Be Approved" before the person is added to the mailing list, or, before they are sent the Confirmation Opt In Email/Link.

    So what I did was make a Multiple Select Field, and made it only visible to the admin.

    Then, under the Aweber Link, under "Forms" in WP, I selected some Opt-In Condition Logic to "Export to Aweber" if, "Status" is "Approved"

    Then, made a Test Entry.

    Then, as admin, in the Edit Entry page....... I marked it as "Approved"

    I had hoped the form would essentially be "re-processed" and "Then" "Export To Aweber"

    But it did not work this way, and this "me feeling so smart feeling" went away ;(

    Is there a way to fully re-process a form, so something like above would work?

    Any tips on how i could accomplish this? I need to manually approve of the data in the form, before the person is actually granted access to the Mailing List.

    Thank you

    There isn't a way to process a form as you've stated. Gravity Forms, as it exists today, requires the linear process to work correctly, and you can't interrupt this process if you want it to pass data to third party services.

  3. Bummer, so could you suggest some way I might be able to do this, just having your thoughts on it maybe you could think of something I'm not in order for me to approve the application/form before submitting to Aweber..

    Thank you
