Why we use GravityView in our projects
Zack combines multiple talents. He is a skilled developer, who tried his ideas first on the WordPress repository, and decided to create the premium plugin GravityView after understanding what his niche market is for the future. He has a good eye for design (his website looks beautiful), but also makes good use of existing platforms like Transifex (for translating his multiple plugins) and Help Scout (to organise his documentation).
GravityView has proven to be an extremely valuable extension of Gravity Forms functionality, with which you can basically build your own content management system (CMS) from scratch with only WP, GF and GravityView. But… working in complex projects, where you want to display information in different ways, GravityView is an essential add-on for Gravity Forms, and something you can trust and build your business on.
- Super handy admin toolbar item:
With the Toolbar Menu Item you can quickly select ‘Edit View’, ‘Edit Form’ or ‘Edit Entry’ on the actual page your view’s shortcode is embedded. This makes it super easy to switch between front-end and back-end of your site.
- Front-end Entry notes:
You can show, edit and delete entry notes on the front-end of your site, which gives a lot of opportunities to track progress and process on an entry.
- Hard and soft filtering:
You can do that in the View itself (hard, a filter is always active on that particular view) or within the shortcode when embedding a view (soft, you can embed multiple times with one filter).
- (Advanced) filtering on the frond-end:
Create a view once, but use (advanced filtering) to quickly create multiple ‘filtered views’ you want to add on your site.
- Add custom content to your view:
With Custom Content you can easily add and create new pieces of data (with merge tag support) to your view, table, excel or map.
Add new View: With GravityView you can create several default structures to show the data in forms. The Table View and Listing View are standard available in GravityView. You can add easily new View Types by installing them in WordPress.
View Configuration: The configuration of your View is always divided in 3 different settings:
- Multiple Entries: you can configure here how the listing of multiple entries looks like.
- Single Entry: you can configure how the data of a Single Gravity Forms Entry should look like.
- Edit Entry: you have full control what fields can be edited and how the edit screen should look like.
Navigation & filtering multiple entries: On the Multiple Entries configuration page you can add different special functions to navigate, inform or filter the results on the page.
- Show Pagination Info: Summary of the number of visible entries out of the total results.
- Page Links: Links to multiple pages of results (especially when you have a low number of entries shown in the list).
- Custom Content: Add your own custom content in HTML to show on top or at the bottom of your list.
- Search Bar: Very cool function to create different filters for your entry list, like ‘Search all entries’ or specific fields.
Show Gravity Forms Entries on a Calendar
Do you want to create a Calendar view filled with Gravity Forms entries, for example to show when events or deadlines are coming?
Export 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.
Inline Real-Time Editing Gravity Forms Field Values
Do you want to quickly edit a single Gravity Form Field Value, without having to open the complete Entry Edit screen? Both in the backend and frontend of your site?
Download Gravity Forms Entries in Excel
Do you want to create a download link to an Excel file with all your Gravity Forms entries data from a form (or even forms)? Doeke Norg created a wonderful plugin to do exactly that.
GravityView Dynamic Population
You can use GravityView to dynamically populate a lot of fields in your Gravity Form. In this tutorial we explain you how you can use GravityView and Import Entries to make a beautiful list of links (which uses already available information) to fill in fields in a Gravity Form automatically.
Update Entry Email Notification in Gravityview
Do you want to trigger Gravity Forms e-mail notifications when updating an entry, even when using GravityView to update entries from the front-end of your site. You can download the Entry Revisions plugin to get that option.
Excel Export Gravity Forms 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.
Import Entries from Excel Gravity Forms
With the plugin Import Entries you can easily import entries using an Excel file. This makes it also possible to import big list of data to your WordPress site and use it to fill in information automatically using the Polulate Field possibility in Gravity Forms.
