Gravity form to external database

  1. Hi All,

    I'm new here so I apologise if this topic has already been covered. I am currently doing some work for one of my clients. The platform is Wordpress which I'm using in conjunction with the Gravity Forms plugin. The site is complete apart from one small thing. My client has requested that the data that comes from gravity forms is pushed to their external mysql database.

    Is there any way I can do this using existing functionality within Gravity Forms?

    Kind regards,
    Fred

  3. Yes it's possible. You can use the gform_post_submission hook to send the data wherever you want, after it's captured by Gravity Forms.

    In 1.6 and later, you should use the gform_after_submission hook. It does basically the same thing, but the name has changed and the old function will be deprecated.

    You would have to handle the database connection details and insert in a function that is hooked to gform_post_submission or gform_after_submission
