Triggering Webhooks on Form Submissions


The Gravity Forms Webhooks Add-On enables you to make remote HTTP requests to external services when a form is submitted.

By utilizing webhooks, you can pass form data on to 3rd party services even when there is not an official add-on available for it.

If you would like an alternative with a little less webhook work, check out our Zapier Add-On, which allows you to utilize the thousands of integration Zapier can connect to.

Configuring Webhooks

Ensure you have installed and activated the Webhooks Add-On.
