Use this filter to create a new field setting under the Advanced tab. Useful when implementing a new custom field type that requires custom settings.


add_action( 'gform_field_advanced_settings', 'my_advanced_settings', 10, 2 );


  • $position integer

    Specifies the position that the settings will be displayed. For a list of all available positions, search form_detail.php for “gform_field_advanced_settings” or review the Advanced Field Settings article.

  • $form_id integer

    The ID of the form from which the entry value was submitted.


This example creates a new Advanced setting on position 50 (right after the Admin Label setting), that specifies if the field data should be encrypted.

add_action( 'gform_field_advanced_settings', 'my_advanced_settings', 10, 2 );
function my_advanced_settings( $position, $form_id ) {

    //create settings on position 50 (right after Admin Label)
    if ( $position == 50 ) {
        <li class="encrypt_setting field_setting">
            <label for="field_admin_label">
                <?php _e("Encryption", "gravityforms"); ?>
                <?php gform_tooltip("form_field_encrypt_value") ?>
            <input type="checkbox" id="field_encrypt_value" onclick="SetFieldProperty('encryptField', this.checked);" /> encrypt field value

//Action to inject supporting script to the form editor page
add_action( 'gform_editor_js', 'editor_script' );
function editor_script(){
    <script type='text/javascript'>
        //adding setting to fields of type "text"
        fieldSettings.text += ", .encrypt_setting";

        //binding to the load field settings event to initialize the checkbox
        jQuery(document).bind("gform_load_field_settings", function(event, field, form){
            jQuery("#field_encrypt_value").attr("checked", field["encryptField"] == true);

//Filter to add a new tooltip
add_filter( 'gform_tooltips', 'add_encryption_tooltips' );
function add_encryption_tooltips( $tooltips ) {
   $tooltips['form_field_encrypt_value'] = "<h6>Encryption</h6>Check this box to encrypt this field's data";
   return $tooltips;
