Use this filter to perform actions right after an entry has been saved. This fires before notifications are sent and before the confirmation is processed.


add_filter( 'gform_entry_post_save', 'post_save', 10, 2 );



1. Temporarily change field value

This example appends the text “testing” to the value of field 1 in the lead. This new value will be available for use in notifications and confirmations, but the updated text is NOT saved with the entry.

add_filter( 'gform_entry_post_save', 'post_save', 10, 2 );
function post_save( $entry, $form ) {
    $entry['1'] = rgar( $entry, '1' ) . ' testing';
    return $entry;

2. Change Entry Property

This example shows how you can change an entry property such as the ‘source_url’ and save the change.

add_filter( 'gform_entry_post_save', function ( $entry ) {
    $entry['source_url'] = 'the new url here';
    GFAPI::update_entry_property( $entry['id'], 'source_url', $entry['source_url'] );

    return $entry;
} );


This code should be placed in the functions.php file of your active theme.
