I have Form A and Form B.  When Form B is updated via the frontend or admin, I use frm_after_update_entry and it works fine and updates the field in Form A.  However, if a field is updated in Form B via a Form Action - in this case its payment status is canceled via the Formidable Payments admin and the "Collect A Payment" action in Form B sets the field in Form B correctly frm_after_update_entry is not called (not surprisingly) to allow me to change Form A.  I tried adding an API form action to Form B to set the field in Form A on an update, but that had no effect (though I guess there could be a chance I didn't do it correctly).  How can I handle this situation?

I'm thinking you would want a modification of this:

This hook acknowledges payment status before it completes an action. At least the sequencing of checks and balances is in order and maybe you can add in your needs.
