Several notification events are available within Gravity Forms as well as additional add-ons. In this article, we will outline the notification events that are available to you.

Gravity Forms

Form is submitted

The Form is submitted notification event does exactly what it says – sends a notification when a form is submitted. This is the default notification sent if you do not have any selections available within your installed add-ons.

Form is saved

When using the Save and Continue functionality on your form, this event becomes available. By using this event type, a notification will be sent any time a form is saved to be continued later.

Save and continue email is requested

This notification is sent each time an email containing the save and continue link is requested. Upon enabling Save and Continue within your form settings, a notification for this event is automatically created.

Payment Add-On Events

Payment Completed

Available in:

  • PayPal Standard Add-On
  • PayPal Payments Pro Add-On
  • Stripe Add-On
  • Authorize.Net Add-On

The Payment Completed notification event will send the notification when a payment has successfully been completed.

This is not to be confuse with the Subscription Created event which will occur when a new subscription is created.

Payment Refunded

When a payment is refunded in PayPal, the Payment Refunded event will trigger a notification.

If a payment fails, any notifications configured for the Payment Failed event will be triggered.

Payment Pending

Keep in mind that this notification only fires if you have your PayPal IPN correctly configured.
