Pay attention! To link MICE Operations to forms in Gravity Forms, you will need the "Webhooks add-on". This is currently only available with an Elite license. Make sure you have the right license before you continue.

Go to the WordPress admin environment (with an admin account) and choose Forms > Add-Ons from the main menu. Scroll all the way down to "Webhooks Add-On". If you don't have the right licence, you'll see this directly through the red text and "Upgrade" button.

If everything is OK, you will see the "Activate" button. Select this button if you want to continue with the settings.

Then, go from the main menu in the admin environment to Forms > Forms. In the table that appears, you will see the forms of your website. Move your mouse over the name of the form you want to link and then over "Settings". If the Webhooks Add-On is activated you will see "Webhooks" here.

Click on the "Add new" button. This is next to the title "Webhooks feeds".

Attention! Before you can continue you will need an API key. You can request this via the chat.

In the screen below you fill in the settings for the link with MICE Operations. This is an example configuration.
