Using Gravity Forms ‘gform_confirmation_actions’ PHP action

The gform_confirmation_actions is an action in Gravity Forms that allows you to modify the list of actions which display below the Confirmation Name on the Confirmations list view.


To use this action, you need to use add_action function with it. Here’s a generic example:

add_action( 'gform_confirmation_actions', 'my_custom_function' );
function my_custom_function($actions) {
    // your custom code here
    return $actions;


  • $actions (array): An array of current confirmation actions.

This action is located in the GFConfirmationTable::column_name() function in form_settings.php file.


Adding a ‘duplicate’ action

In this example, we are adding a ‘duplicate’ action. This action will not actually duplicate the form as the myCustomDuplicateConfirmationFunction() function doesn’t exist.

add_action( 'gform_confirmation_actions', 'my_custom_confirmation_action' );
function my_custom_confirmation_action( $actions ) {
    // adds a 'duplicate' action with a link that triggers some functionality on click
    $actions['duplicate'] = '<a href="javascript:void(0)" onclick="myCustomDuplicateConfirmationFunction();">Duplicate</a>';
    return $actions;

Removing an action

This code removes a specific action from the confirmations.

add_action( 'gform_confirmation_actions', 'remove_specific_action' );
function remove_specific_action( $actions ) {
    unset($actions['specific_action']); // replace 'specific_action' with the action you want to remove
    return $actions;

Adding a new action with custom functionality

This example adds a new action that triggers a JavaScript alert.

add_action( 'gform_confirmation_actions', 'add_alert_action' );
function add_alert_action( $actions ) {
    $actions['alert'] = '<a href="javascript:void(0)" onclick="alert(\'This is a custom action!\');">Alert</a>';
    return $actions;

Modifying an existing action

This code modifies the ‘duplicate’ action to show a custom message.

add_action( 'gform_confirmation_actions', 'modify_duplicate_action' );
function modify_duplicate_action( $actions ) {
    if (isset($actions['duplicate'])) {
        $actions['duplicate'] = '<a href="javascript:void(0)" onclick="alert(\'Duplicate action has been modified!\');">Modified Duplicate</a>';
    return $actions;

Clear all actions

This example clears all actions from the confirmations.

add_action( 'gform_confirmation_actions', 'clear_all_actions' );
function clear_all_actions( $actions ) {
    return [];
