TutorialEdit and Duplicate Multiple Fields Gravity Forms

Do you want to duplicate multiple Gravity Forms fields at once? Or edit many titles of different fields in one overview? Than you should really consider to use the Bulk Actions Pro plugin for Gravity Forms.

Edit multiple Gravity Forms field

Bulk Actions creates a different visual (and very functional) way to show your Gravity Forms fields. Normally every field takes a lot of space and you are scrolling down a lot. With Bulk Actions you see only the field titles and can click multiple fields to perform cloning, duplicating or editing actions on them.

If you compare this with the normal UI for Gravity Forms, you will see that the the above Bulk Actions overview is much more compact.

Then hit ‘Duplicate’Notice that we changed the standard option to ‘Inline’ duplicating. There are three different ways: Top: The selected Gravity Forms will be duplicated and pasted to the Top of the form. Bottom: This places the duplicated fields at the Bottom of the form (nice when you are building your form from scratch). Inline: the copied fields will be pasted under the fields that are being copied. It’s easy than to loose the selection and click only the fields you want to change the position of and put them in the right place. Saves really a lot of time. Note: when copying, Bulk Actions will add (copy 1) or (copy 2) to the fields. Before saving, it’s not possible to duplicate duplicated fields.

Move the selected fields to the desired location

Select all the fields you want to use and move them to the preferred position. You can easily select and move the fields as a group around your form and put them exactly where you want them.
