It appears to me that Freeform Submission events do not fire when editing events in the control panel. They certainly fire from a front-end submission.

That would make this statement in the documentation untrue. Emphasis added.

Hook into Submission events to attach your own logic for when submissions are being created, edited or deleted. [1]

Can someone smarter than me confirm or deny this, please?

"Submissions" is referring to the submission of a front end form. Not the Control Panel.

  • Thanks. This isn't very helpful, though. From my understanding Submission is an element Shouldn't matter. Maybe it does. Do you know of any events firing from the control panel then?
