Gravity Forms Nested Forms v1.0 Beta 4 Released

I can’t tell you how excited I am to be publicly releasing Gravity Forms Nested Forms today. This perk has been in some stage of development for several years, originating as a freelance project and growing into a robust and polished Gravity Forms plugin.

Many of our users have already been using this perk via Early Access. We received tons of feedback and have carefully considered and implemented these ideas to create a product we’re truly proud of.

Gravity Forms Nested Forms adds a new Nested Form field type. This field allows you to select another form that will be used to collect “child” entries and attach them to the “parent” entry on submission. This makes managing complex forms easier for you to manage and easier for your users to complete.

We are quite pleased to release the first public beta of Gravity Forms Nested Forms. You can install the new plugin directly from the “Manage Perks” page in your WordPress admin.

Here are a selection of features that is new plugin offers.

  • Simplify Complex Forms & Collect Repeatable Data
    Create forms that are easier for you to manage and easier for your user’s to complete.
  • Register Groups and Individuals on the Same Form
    Register a team and players or a company and employees or a make and models all on the same form.
  • Use Sum, Total and Count in Calculations
    Pull data from your nested forms into your parent form for powerful, dynamic calculations.
  • Control the Look & Feel
    Helpful UI, flexible templating, and handy hooks.
  • Process Feeds for Child Entries
    On child form submission – or – only when the parent form is submitted; allows you to do things like register a user for each child entry. Insane!
  • Powerful Developer Options
    Well-documented hooks and a flexible templating system make extending this plugin a breeze.

This is just the tip of the iceberg of what can be done with this new plugin. We’d strongly recommend reading the documentation and checking out the demo there.

    Hi there,

    Is that possible to add numbering to the nested form in both front end nested table and email? Sometimes when lots of entries in the form, the email is super long and may miss the entry during screwing down… I would like to auto generate numbers to each entry’s heading.

    this looks great! would this still work with gravity flow? we create “parent” service tickets with “child” service reports that then go to a manager for approval.

    Hi would you be able to help me outputting a child entry for use with gravity pdf?

    Currently the parent field merge tag outputs a table of the individual entries in my pdf. Currently the table includes the field labels, which I don’t need. I’d really like to output just the field contents.

      We have definite plans to add better support for controlling the output of the Nested Form field merge tag. Hopefully, this will make it in the 1.0 release. We’ll see!

    After installing and activating Nested Forms from Dashboard > Perks > Install Perks, I’m missing the new form field and the perk does not appear under Dashboard > Perks > Manage Perks.

      I am having the same issue. I have activated Nested Forms but I do not have an option to add a child form to a parent form.
