Connect Gravity Forms to Zapier via Webhook (WordPress side)
Gravity Forms is a powerful form plugin for WordPress that allows you to create custom forms with ease. Integrating Gravity Forms with Zapier opens up a world of possibilities for automating your workflow and streamlining data collection. In this article, we will walk you through the process of connecting Gravity Forms to Zapier using webhooks, empowering you to automate tasks and save valuable time.
Install Gravity Forms Webhooks Add-On
To begin, you’ll need to install the Gravity Forms Webhooks add-on. This add-on extends the functionality of Gravity Forms by enabling you to integrate with external services via webhooks. Webhooks serve as a communication channel between your form and Zapier, allowing data to be passed seamlessly.
Create the form as needed
Once you have installed the Gravity Forms Webhooks add-on, proceed to create your form. Customize it to suit your specific needs, including the fields and options you require to collect the desired information from your users.
In the form’s Settings click on Webhooks
After creating your form, navigate to its settings. Look for the “Webhooks” tab and click on it. This is where the magic happens as you establish the connection between Gravity Forms and Zapier.
Fill in the following details then save
Assign a meaningful name to your webhook. This will help you identify it later if you have multiple webhooks set up.
- Request URL (here is where you add the Zapier hook link provided by Zapier)
Obtain the webhook URL from Zapier. In your Zapier account, create a new Zap and select “Webhooks by Zapier” as the trigger. Zapier will provide you with a unique URL to connect with Gravity Forms.
- Request Method – POST
Choose “POST” as the request method. This ensures that the data submitted through your form is sent to Zapier securely and efficiently.
- Request Format – JSON
Select “JSON” as the request format. This ensures that the data is structured in a standardized and easily interpretable format.
- Request Body – All Fields
Specify that you want to include all the form fields in the request body. This ensures that all the information submitted by users is transmitted to Zapier for further processing.
Add your Gravity Forms to the Page. If you’re using a plugin or shortcode, ensure the ajax=”false” as the example below:
[gravityform id="add your form ID here" title="false" description="false" ajax="false"]
Now that you have configured the webhook settings, it’s time to add your Gravity Form to the desired page. If you’re using a plugin or shortcode to embed the form, make sure to include the attribute “ajax=false” to prevent any conflicts and ensure smooth operation.
By following these steps, you have successfully connected Gravity Forms to Zapier via webhooks. This integration allows you to automate actions based on form submissions, such as sending data to other apps, triggering notifications, or updating databases. Take advantage of the seamless connection between Gravity Forms and Zapier to streamline your workflow, increase efficiency, and save time.
Remember, with the power of Gravity Forms and the versatility of Zapier, the possibilities are endless. Let automation work for you and unlock the full potential of your WordPress website.
