What is Gravity Perks?
The Gravity Perks plugin integrates seamlessly with Gravity Forms and provides you a consolidated admin for managing all of your Gravity-related “perks” in a single location.
What is a perk?
A perk is a small, single-purpose plugin (powered by Gravity Perks) which enhances Gravity Forms with a new feature. Some examples of the features perks can bring to the table:
- Do you want to copy your shipping address to your billing address field? There’s a perk for that!
- Do you want to add support for HTML5 placeholders to Gravity Forms? There’s a perk for that!
- Do you want to limit how many times a choice may be selected for a Radio Button or Drop Down field? Yeah, you get the idea.
Let’s install Gravity Perks! If you’re already familiar with installing WordPress plugins by uploading a plugin zip file, this will be cake. If not, this will still be cake. Here are step by step instructions.
- Download the Gravity Perks zip file from the Your Products page to your computer.
- Log into your WordPress admin.
- Navigate to the Plugins page and click the “Add New” button to the right of the page title.
- You should now be on the “Install Plugins” page. Below the page title is a series of text links. It will start with “Search”, followed by “Upload”. Click the “Upload” link.
- You will now see a file upload field. Click on this field, then browse to the Gravity Perks zip file you downloaded to your computer and select it.
- Click the “Install Now” button.
- After the plugin has been installed, the installation summary will offer an “Activate” link. Click this link to activate Gravity Perks!

Browsing and Installing Perks
Now that Gravity Perks is installed, you’re ready to start browsing the available Perks! If this is the first time you’ve installed Gravity Perks, you will see a little pointer indicating where you can find the “Perks” menu item under the Gravity Forms primary “Forms” navigation. Once you’ve dismissed this pointer, it won’t bother you anymore.
The “Manage Perks” page provides you a list of all of the perks you have currently installed. Chances are, you probably haven’t installed any yet. Go ahead and click on the “Add New” button to the right of the “Manage Perks” page title.
You will now be directed to the “Install Perks” page. On this page, you can browse all of the available perks and decide which ones you’d like to install. Each perk has a brief description of the functionality it provides. When you’ve found a perk that interests you, just click the “Install” button below the perk title to install this perk. Yep, it’s that easy!
Each Perk adds its own custom settings depending on the functionality it provides. A majority of these custom settings will appear under a new “Perks” tab on the form and field settings area.
Some perks will add “global” settings that are not form or field specific. If a perk has any global settings, you can manage them from the “Perks” page by clicking the “Settings” link beneath the perk title. Please note: the “Settings” link will only be displayed if a perk requires one or more global settings.
The best way to learn more about managing a specific perk is to read the perk’s documentation. To view the documentation for a specific perk, go to the “Manage Perks” page and click the “Documentation” link displayed beneath the perk title.
