Using Gravity Forms ‘gform_web_api_retrieve_form_totals’ PHP filter

The gform_web_api_retrieve_form_totals filter allows you to exclude the entries property (entry totals) from the GET /forms (REST API v1) response. This can help improve performance when entry totals are not needed.


To use the filter:

add_filter('gform_web_api_retrieve_form_totals', 'your_function_name', 10, 2);

You can also specify this per form by adding the form ID after the filter name:

add_filter('gform_web_api_retrieve_form_totals_6', 'your_function_name', 10, 2);


  • $include_totals (boolean): Whether to include totals; defaults to true.
  • $form (object): The current form properties (id, title, date_created, is_active).
