The gform_entries_primary_column_filter filter is used to modify the contents of the first column in the entries list table.


The filter which runs for all forms would be used like so:

add_filter( 'gform_entries_primary_column_filter', 'your_function_name', 10, 7 );


  • $column_value string
    The column value to be filtered. Contains the field value wrapped in a link/a tag.
  • $form_id integer
    The ID of the current form.
  • $field_id integer|string
    The ID of the field or the name of an entry column (i.e. date_created).
  • $entry array
    The Entry object.
  • $query_string string
    The current page’s query string.
  • $edit_url string
    The url to the entry edit page.
  • $value string
    The value of the field.


add_filter( 'gform_entries_primary_column_filter', function( $column_value, $form_id, $field_id, $entry, $query_string, $edit_url, $field_value ) {
	if ( $form_id == 56 ) {
		$column_value = '<a href="' . $edit_url . '">Click to view entry</a>';
	return $column_value;
}, 10, 7 );
