How to configure a calendar for Gravity Forms
The Add-on adds an extra settings page in your Gravity Form. You can give it a Feed Name (this won’t be visible on the front-end of the site, but makes it easy to distinguish between created feeds).
Under Calendar Fields you can set:
- Start Date: Connect to a Date Field in your Gravity Form. This is the only required field. If only a Start Date is provided, it will make it an all day long event.
- End Date: Also a Gravity Form Date Field value, but this one is optional. If filled and it’s a date in the future compared to the Start Date, it will be a multi day event.
- Start Time: On which time does the event start. This is a Gravity Forms Time Field (and optional).
- End Date: On which time does the event end. This is also a Gravity Forms Time Field (and optional).
You are required to create an Event Title and you can use Merge Tags (and Merge Tag Modifiers) to build you custom Event Title the way you want it.
Optional is an Event Description (you can also use Merge Tags) and an Event URL (link to more information, or place to register, etc).
You can set a background color for the events on the calendar:
Layout options Gravity Forms Calendar
There are three layout categories:
You can decide where the Calendar should start. This can be the currend day (Today), but if there is nothing to show for today, you can also automatically jump to the last event or the next event.
Automatically on the top left the title (current month / week / day) will be shown and in the top right above the calendar an option to jump to today or to click forward or backwards through the calendar. The Add-on provides a handy WYSIWYG editor to change the way the controls are positioned.
Allow HTML Content
You can enable HTML content to be allowed in the event title and / or description.
Editing calendar events
You can enable editing events in the calendar. Authorized users can then drag and drop calendar items and edit the Gravity Forms entry.
Conditional Logic on Entries shown on the Calendar
You can also filter the Gravity Forms entries that should be visible on the Calendar.
