Do you want to automatically create entries based on selected checkbox and multi-select choices or on rows in a List Field? With the Field to Entries Add-on for Gravity Forms you can do that with a feed.
Create entries based on checkbox choices
In this example we’ll walk you through creating entries based on selected checkbox choices. We have a form with a Single Line Text field the user can fill in a name and a Checkbox with different tasks.
In the Form Settings > Field to Entries we can create a new feed. As source we select the Checkbox Field and we select as Target Form a newly created Tasks Form. This Tasks form has only two Single Line Text Fields (Name & Task).
Under Field Mapping we map the name fields (we want to have the name filled in every time). The Single Line Text Field ‘Task’ we want to fill with the selected Task value. You can do that by selecting ‘Field -> Entry: Tasks (each selected item)’. This will create a new Entry for every selected checkbox item and fills in the name and the selected task.
Now we can fill in our example Form:
This will create automatically two entries in the Task Form:
Create entries based on List Field rows
We can do the same with a Gravity Forms List Field. We’ll add that to our example Form:
We add a new Feed to our Form in Form Settings > Field to Entries:
We can select under Field Mapping the Task Field and map it to ‘Field -> Entry: List (each row)’:
We add some extra tasks in the List:
When submitting this Form it automatically creates an entry based on the selected Checkbox item ánd will create a new entry for every row in the List Field.
Create entries based on Multi Select
You can also use a Gravity Forms Multi Select Field to dynamiccaly create new entries based on the selected values.
We’ve added a Multi Select Field to our example form with 6 choices:
And map it to the selected Multi Select choices:
We have advanced User Interface on, so you can easily select items in the Multi Select. This time we only select Task 2, 4 and 6.
This created new entries for every selected Multi Select item:
