I'd like to trigger a Mailchimp action to update a subscriber when the value of the email field in my form is updated.  The Mailchimp action is currently set to trigger for new entries (to add the subscriber).  However, I don't want the action to be triggered if there are updates to other fields, but not the email field.  Any ideas how could I do that?  -Jane

As far as I can tell the answer is the same as your other question. frm_pre_entry_update and trigger the notifications manually.

I don't want to trigger email notifications, I want to trigger Mailchimp API actions. Not sure how to do that.

My bad. I thought my trigger code was generic to actions, not just email. Take a look at this page and maybe you can code one of those action triggers to suit your needs https://formidableforms.com/knowledgebase/add-a-form-action/

<p>Maybe I could use your trigger code. I'll have to look into that. Adding my own form action looks too advanced for my skills and I have no idea where to start to make it trigger a Mailchimp action.</p>

Humm, in your trigger code, I imagine FrmNotification won't do what I want. Have any idea what I'd need to replace that with?
