Inline Edit: How to trigger Gravity Forms actions when updating a field value

For the Inline Edit plugin, when you update a field value, it doesn't trigger the normal Gravity Forms "Entry Updated" action. That's because when you're updating 10 fields for 10 entries, that could lead to 100 emails!

But sometimes you want to turn on Gravity Forms actions. To do that, Inline Edit has a filter: gravityview-inline-edit/remove-gf-update-hooks, the default is true.

To trigger Gravity Forms actions when updating fields, add this code:

add_filter( 'gravityview-inline-edit/remove-gf-update-hooks', '__return_false' );

Add the code to your functions.php file, and the following hooks will be once again be triggered when editing a field value, as if you edited the entry in Gravity Forms' Edit Entry mode:

  • gform_entry_pre_update
  • gform_form_pre_update_entry
  • gform_form_pre_update_entry_{$form_id}
  • gform_post_update_entry
  • gform_post_update_entry_{$form_id}
