Using Gravity Forms ‘gform_getresponse_contact’ PHP filter

The gform_getresponse_contact Gravity Forms PHP filter allows you to modify contact properties before they are sent to the GetResponse API.


To apply the filter to all feeds:

add_filter('gform_getresponse_contact', 'your_function_name', 10, 5);

To target feeds for a specific form, append the form ID to the filter name (format: gform_getresponse_contact_FORMID):

add_filter('gform_getresponse_contact_1', 'your_function_name', 10, 5);


  • $contact (array): The contact properties.
  • $existing_contact (bool|array): False or the existing contact properties.
  • $feed (Feed Object): The feed currently being processed.
  • $entry (Entry Object): The entry currently being processed.
  • $form (Form Object): The form currently being processed.

Trigger Autoresponders When a Contact is Added to a List

This example demonstrates how to modify the contact properties to trigger autoresponders when a contact is added to a list.

add_filter('gform_getresponse_contact', function($contact) {
    $contact['dayOfCycle'] = 0;
    return $contact;

Note: Place this code in the functions.php file of the active theme, a custom functions plugin, or a custom add-on. See Where Do I Put This Code? for more information.

This filter was added in GetResponse version 1.4 and is located in gravityformsgetresponse/class-gf-getresponse.php.
