How to Trigger a Notification from a Toolset Types Front-end Form

If you use Toolset Types Forms and want to trigger a notification off of a front-end form, you’ll need to do so using their Forms/Cred API.
To do this:

1. Ensure the post is saved as a draft.

2. Create a custom page template that contains this code (replacing XX with your form ID, where needed):

1
2
3
4
5
6
7
8
9
10
function my_success_action($post_id, $form_data) {
if ($form_data['id'] == XX) {
$cur_post = array(
'ID' => $post_id,
'post_status' => 'publish'
);
wp_update_post($cur_post);
}
}
add_action('cred_submit_complete', 'my_success_action', 10, 2);

3. In the settings of the Toolset Form, set a delay of 1 second for the redirection of the form after submission.
