TutorialExport Entries to Excel and CSV Gravity Forms

Do you want to export data from your Gravity Forms to Excel or CSV? There are multiple ways to do that. We describe here our favorite ones, like the default Gravity Forms export functionality (only CSV) and the Add-ons DataTables and GravityExport.

Using the GravityExport plugin

This Gravity Forms Add-on from Katz Web Services, Inc. allows you to create a secure download link on your site where front-end visitors can download (filtered) results. You can try our demo below to see how the Excel file turns out.

Configuring the GravityExport download url, defining an optional Date Range, selecting Download Permissions, choosing to include Entry Notes or not, setting the Order By field (ASC or DESC) and setting the Column Position (Top or Left/Transposed)

  • Select Data Range: select a start or end date or a range between two dates.

Using DataTables

With GravityView and the addon DataTables it gets really easy to export data from Gravity Forms directly to Excel. Ofcourse, Gravity Forms offers the possibility to export data in a .CSV format. But you probably also want the option to download directly to an Excel format from the front-end of your website.
