I have just installed CiviRules 1.12 on CiviCRM 4.7.14. I tried to create a few simple test rules, but none of them worked. I suspect I might have to look for solution somewhere else.

Trigger: Contribution is changed 
Linked Condition: Contact in group TEST
Linked Action: Remove contact from group: TEST

enter image description here

I also tried a few similar Rules, e.g.:

  • IF Contribution is added THEN remove from Group.
  • IF Tag is added THEN remove from Group.
  • IF contact is removed from group THEN display the Message.

All were set to run IMMEDIATELY without delay.

What might have gone wrong? Something with setup or configuration? I did not see anything unusual.


Upon further tests the issue was narrowed down to a single CiviRules action, namely, Remove contact from group.

I would as a test forget about the display message first, and start only with adding to and removing from group. I would expect those to work.

I have just tested a rule on my CiviCRM 4.7.15 local install as in the screen print that I have attached, and that works fine? Can you test with the same rule?

  • After a series of tests, I can conclude that I was missing the refresh button. Actions like Add Tag, Remove Tag, Add to Group, Display Message work fine, however, there is a problem with the Remove contact from Group Action.
