This action hook is executed at the end of the submission process (after form validation, notification, and entry creation) when the confirmation is configured to redirect to a page or URL. Use this hook to perform actions after the entry has been created (i.e. feed data to third party applications). The Entry Object is available to this hook and contains all submitted values.

This hook has been deprecated. Please use gform_after_submission instead.
