I am trying to send notifications to different administrators based on the country that the user chooses in the form.

The form is originally in a "Global" language and I've translated it to a English, French and Spanish languages.

The behavior I've configured is:

- If an user choose "Canada" in the "Country" field, the notification goes to ""
- If an user choose "España" in the "Country" field, the notification goes to ""
- etc.

If the user selects country "España" (in the Spanish page/form: hidden link) it works.

But if the user selects country "Spain" (in the English page/form: hidden link) or Espagne (in the French page/form: hidden link) it does not send the notification.

Please note that the values of the strings in the original form in "global language" are also in Spanish, may be for this reason the notification runs ok using the Spanish page/form.

I've tested that the translations are ok.

Hi Bruno, the problem persists in the same way.

  • There is a form (called "Form 3") translated in 3 languages.
  • It is placed in a page that has 3 language versions (en, es, fr)
  • The form has 3 different notifications and they are configured to be sent depending on the value of the field "Country"
  • The only notification that is sent is the Spanish one

You can check this listing the entries of the "Form 3" and comparing with the email log, where there is only 1 form notification sent.

Thanks in advance

Bronu is not available today so I'll continue to handle this ticket. I hope that it is alright with you.

Thanks for following Bruno's suggestions on replicating the issue on the test site.
Can you please explain to me where did you configure the notifications to be sent according to the 'Country' field (as seen in your screenshot 03.jpg)?

Hi Itamar,
To configure this kind of notifications you must go to the Notifications screen, in Settings Form, and, in the bottom of the screen, check "Conditional logic".
Then you can configure the logic to send the notifications.

Hi and thanks for the extra details.

I can confirm that there is a problem with the 'Notification Conditional logic' of the Gravity Forms. After debugging this issue on the test site, I can define the problem as such: "Gravity Forms Notification Conditional logic does not work on translated forms." This is the same problem that you reported here on your first post. While testing this issue not to be confused with the 'Global' language that you have created, I've switched the test site to have English as the default language. I'll now escalate this issue to our compatibility team. We'll keep you informed here on any news about this issue.

Thank you for your patience.

Hi, this is Ahmed Ibrahim from the 2nd tier support team.

I have checked the issue and I think this happened because you are translating the form values in the string translation module, which make the gravity forms not able to check the condition in the translated forms.
So to fix the issue, you should go to WPML -> String Translation, and make sure that all the form values are not translated, check the attached screenshot, I have marked the "Spain" option to not be translated, and it worked as expected.

Please let me know if that helps you.
Best regards.
