    Default Hear or Heard

    Hi, first time on this forum and I'm not a native English speaker and have a simple question. Which one is grammatically correct: I will let you know when I hear from them or I will let you know when I heard back from them. Many thanks.

    Welcome to the forum, Nerul.

    You need 'hear (back)' or 'have heard (back)'.
    Please do not edit your question after it has received a response. Such editing can make the response hard for others to understand.
