add_filter('gform_field_filters', 'update_filters', 10, 2);
function update_filters($field_filters, $form) {
    foreach ($field_filters as &$filter) {
        if ($filter['key'] == 'payment_status') {
            // Add custom payment status
            $values = $filter['values'];
            $status_exists = false;
            foreach ($values as &$value) {
                if ($value['text'] == 'Test Status') {
                    $status_exists = true;
            if (!$status_exists) {
                // Add status
                array_push($values, array('text' => 'Test Status', 'value' => 'Test Status'));
                $filter['values'] = $values;
    return $field_filters;

Add an operator to a specific field

Add a new operator “isnot” to field ID 2.

add_filter('gform_field_filters', function ($field_filters, $form) {
    foreach ($field_filters as $filter) {
        if (rgar($filter, 'key') == '2') {
            $filter['operators'][] = 'isnot';
    return $field_filters;
}, 10, 2);
