Depending on the addons installed, many form actions will have various trigger options. By default, most form actions are set to trigger at the time an entry is created. Other possible triggers may include entry deletion, entry update, after completed payment, after successful user registration, and others.
Adding conditional logic to your Form Actions allows you to get more functionality. Conditional logic allows you to stop a form action from triggering based on values selected in the form.
Form action triggered multiple times
If your form action is triggered multiple times, check your action trigger settings if it is set to trigger at conflicting options. Most of the time this is caused by having both the Entry is created and Entry is updated options selected at the same time. To resolve this, select only one of the two action triggers.
