Automate actions on WordPress form field values

WordPress form field values automation rule

The field value rule selects submissions which match the values set in the automation rule. Using the “|” special character, multiple values can additionally be placed side by side. Form submissions are selected based on matching field values.

You can choose those submissions which are done using some selected email addresses. Take note that the automation rule only applies to those field values incorporated in the form.

For example, you want to run the automation rule on some chosen email addresses. This rule is applicable only if those accounts with the relative email address have submitted the form.

In this tutorial, we select the field and values on which this automation rule will run.

Navigating to the automation feature

Go to “Automation” from the RegistrationMagic plugin on your dashboard.

Select a field from the drop-down below. You can only select the fields which are present in your form. Fill the values for the respective fields in the adjacent input box. These field values are also the ones present in the form. Thus this section allows you to create automation rules for submitted field values.

For example, you want automation to run on all submissions where the user entered “Value A” in “Field A” form. Define it first in this section by selecting the field and entering the value. Automation also checks all submissions to see which one has that value in that particular field.

Go to the next page. Choose the action you will take on the user account.
