Gravity Forms Progress Meter

Incentivize your audience with a progress meter that tracks how close each submission gets you towards your goal.

February 23rd, 2023: Added support for passing multiple goals via the "goal" attribute: "5;10;50".

February 14th, 2023: Fixed issue where custom "count" values were ignored if 0.

September 8th, 2022: Added new "start" parameter for displaying the starting count (e.g. minimum count) to be displayed in the progress meter.

August 19th, 2021: Added support for automatically formatting numbers (e.g. thousands separators) in labels.


If you’ve ever done any type of fundraising, you know how powerful an incentive a progress meter can be. From physical manifestations like the office canned food drive’s barrel to digital solutions like GoFundMe’s progress meter, these tell your potential donators how much money you plan to raise and how close to the goal you currently are. Knowing the current progress of a project encourages people to donate and creates a feedback loop to keep those donations flowing.

We have built a plugin to add a progress meter to your Gravity Forms for tracking donations and form submissions. You set the goal and it will automatically track the number of submissions. If you collect payments via the form, it can track the amount of money collected. It can even count the quantity of products sold.

Styling for the progress meter is inspired by Gravity Forms 2.5. We love the look and feel of the new progress meter for multi-page forms, and we want to keep that experience consistent with our progress meter.

Using the Plugin


Confirm that you have Gravity Forms installed and activated and that you’ve installed and activated the plugin.

Using the Shortcode

Gravity Forms Progress Meter adds additional parameters to the [gravityforms]shortcode. Using these parameters, you can activate and customize the progress meter to meet your needs. Let’s step through the different configurations.

Progress Meter With Goal

Add the Progress Meter to your form by setting the action parameter to meter and adding a goal value to the [gravityforms].

[gravityforms id="211" action="meter" goal="75"]

This will generate a progress meter at the top of your form with a goal of 75 form submissions.

Currency Goals

If your goal is a specific currency amount and your form collects payment using a Gravity Forms Add-On such as PayPal or Stripe, you can count the payment amount instead of the number of submissions by adding the field parameter to the shortcode and setting its value to payment_amount.

[gravityforms id="211" action="meter" field="payment_amount" goal="75"]

The progress meter will increment based on the amount spent after a payment has been processed. If the payment method has delayed processing, such as often the case with PayPal, then the count won’t increase until payment is finalized.

Learn more about displaying and customizing the progress meter shortcode along with nearly every other kind of Gravity Forms shortcode with our comprehensive guide.

Custom Labels

Gravity Forms Progress Meter supports custom labels for both the submission count and the goal, using the count_label and goal_label parameters. Here’s an example where we replace both.

[gravityforms id="211" action="meter" count_label="Donations %d" goal_label="Goal %d" goal="75"]

Note the %d within the parameter value. The plugin uses this know where to insert the submission count and goal count.

Combine with Currency Goals

If you combine custom labels with Currency Goals, you can track the amount spent and display it above your form, similar to what you see on Kickstarter and GoFundMe.

[gravityforms id="211" action="meter" field="2.3" goal="25"]

Note the use of .3 in the field parameter. This targets the quantity input within a Product field.

[gravityforms id="211" action="meter" field="payment_amount" count_label="Donations $%d" goal_label="Goal $%d" goal="1000"]

Count Values in a Field

Instead of counting submissions, you can count the value of a field using the field parameter. This is useful for counting the quantity of an item sold, or the amount of money spent. Below is an example where we count the quantity of a Product whose Field ID is 2.

[gravityforms id="211" action="meter" field="2.3" goal="25"]

Note the use of .3 in the field parameter. This targets the quantity input within a Product field.

Multiple Goals

Having a smaller starting goal can be motivate users to try and reach it more quickly. You can pass multiple goals with the goals parameter by separating each goal amount with a semi-colon. As each goal is reached, the next value will be set as the goal amount.

Here’s an example where the initial goal will start at 5. Once five submissions have been made, the goal will automatically increase to 10. Once the form has 10 submissions, the final goal will be set to 50.

[gravityforms id="211" action="meter" goal="5;10;50"]


  • id integer required

    The form ID that acts as the data source for the progress meter.

  • action string required

    The action that will be performed. Use “meter” to add a progress meter.

  • goal integer required

    Specify the goal amount for the progress meter.

    Also, supports multiple goals by passing goal amounts separate by a semi-colon (e.g. “5;10;50”). As each goal is reached, the next goal will be displayed.

  • start integer optional

    The minimum amount (or starting progress) that will be displayed until it is surpassed by the actual count.

  • field string optional

    Specify a field ID to count the sum of this field’s submitted values. Use “payment_amount” to count currency.

  • count_label string optional

    The label to display for the submission count. Must include %d to include the count.

  • goal_label string optional

    The label to display for the goal amount. Must include %d to include the count.


We’re releasing this plugin today with the plans to build additional features in the future. Currently, here’s what we have on our to-do list:

  • Support for different colors and themes.
  • Live updates as new entries are submitted.
  • Option to calculate by true form total rather than captured payments.
  • Offer this functionality as a custom block for the Block Editor.

Let us know if you have any ideas for other features or options you’d like to see in the plugin. We’re eager to hear how you’d like to use it!

Help users progress through your forms by improving their look and feel. Gravity Forms Page Transitions brings your forms to life with sleek, animated transitions between form pages, and automatically progresses users to the next page of the form after the last field on the current page is completed.

Taking It Further

Display the Number of Forms the Current User Completed

The snippet below adds a new name parameter to the shortcode. When the name parameter’s value is set to forms_completed, the progress meter will dynamically set the “count” to the number of distinct forms completed by the user and the “goal” to the total number of forms on the site.

add_filter( 'shortcode_atts_gf_progress_meter', function( $atts ) {
	global $wpdb;
	if ( $atts['name'] === 'forms_completed' ) {
		if ( ! $atts['goal'] ) {
			$atts['goal'] = count( GFFormsModel::get_form_ids() );
		$atts['count'] = $wpdb->get_var( $wpdb->prepare( "select count( distinct form_id ) from {$wpdb->prefix}gf_entry where created_by = %d", get_current_user_id() ) );
	return $atts;
} );

Once the snippet is installed, add the form shortcode with the new name parameter like this:

[gravityforms action="meter" id="123" name="forms_completed"]

By default, the goal is set to the total number of forms on the site. If you want to set the goal to a fixed number of forms, you could set the goal to that number using the goal parameter.

[gravityforms action="meter" id="123" name="forms_completed" goal="20"]

Display Count Label as Hours and Minutes

A Gravity Perks Pro customer needed a form that asked users to donate time in minutes, but they wanted to display that time as hours and minutes in the progress bar. So we wrote a snippet that will convert the count label from minutes to hours and minutes.

To use the snippet, copy the code into your theme’s functions.php file and then update the 123 to your form ID as designated by the inline comment.

add_filter( 'shortcode_atts_gf_progress_meter', function( $atts ) {

	// Update 123 to your form ID.
	if ( $atts['id'] == 123 ) {

		$count = gw_progress_meter()->get_count( $atts );
		$goal = $atts['goal'];

		if ( $count > 60 ) {

			$hours         = floor( $count / 60 );
			$hours_label   = sprintf( '%d %s', $hours, _n( 'hour', 'hours', $hours ) );
			$minutes       = $count - ( $hours * 60 );
			$minutes_label = $minutes ? sprintf( '%d %s', $minutes, _n( 'minute', 'minutes', $minutes ) ) : '';

			$atts['count_label'] = sprintf( '%s %s', $hours_label, $minutes_label );

		} else {

			$atts['count_label'] = sprintf( '%d minutes', $count );

		if ( $goal > 60 ) {

			$hours         = floor( $goal / 60 );
			$hours_label   = sprintf( '%d %s', $hours, _n( 'hour', 'hours', $hours ) );
			$minutes       = $goal - ( $hours * 60 );
			$minutes_label = $minutes ? sprintf( '%d %s', $minutes, _n( 'minute', 'minutes', $minutes ) ) : '';

			$atts['goal_label'] = sprintf( '%s %s', $hours_label, $minutes_label );

		} else {

			$atts['goal_label'] = sprintf( '%d minutes', $goal );


	return $atts;
} );

    I would love to only count the donations that have been paid (not expired or cancelled) as it is doing now (maybe Im setting it up wrong). Is that possible?

    1. Dario
      Dario March 5, 2024 at 2:57 pm

      Hi, this will probably require some snippet customization since currently it counts when the form is submitted, not when the status of the entry is pad. If you have an active Gravity Perks Advanced or Pro license, you can reach us out through our support form.


  2. Scott Lewis
    Scott Lewis February 7, 2024 at 10:19 am

    I’d also like to add a vote for the mentioned possible future enhancement to count payments from a specified field. That would make counting entries from forms that offer a choice of credit card or mail a check with less admin overhead.

  3. Scott Lewis
    Scott Lewis February 7, 2024 at 10:16 am

    Thanks for this plugin. I’ll second the request above to add the ability to show progress as percentage of goal. That’s how many donation form specific plugins work and using Gravity Forms as an alternative will be an easier choice if the same capability is available.

    I assume this is implemented as a filter, not as its own shortcode, so that it can catch entries and payments. Otherwise it’d be more intuitive as a separate shortcode. As it works now, it would be very helpful to make it clearer in the basic documentation that you need the form shortcode twice, once to show the progress meter and once to show the form. It took me a while to figure that out and I’m an experienced admin and developer.

    1. Scott Lewis
      Scott Lewis February 24, 2024 at 9:59 am

      The snippet produced a critical error so I removed it but I was able to meet our need by using the field ID instead of its slug/name.

      It turns out you can count a field other than payment_amount but you have to specify the field by its ID, not its name, because the query in the plugin just passes it through and in the gf_entry_meta table, meta_keys are the numeric IDs, not the names.

    2. David Smith
      David Smith Staff February 24, 2024 at 10:44 am

      That’s right, Scott! Glad you were able to get this sorted.

      What was the critical error you were seeing?

    Is it possible for me to use this to set up a fundraising page like a go fund me dynamically, all it may require from the website owner is an approval and then the page can go live.

    I set up all the parameters on the first page, it creates the second and it allows me to send multiple email invitations out to people or creates a url I can share?

    Do you have to stack the shortcodes? I prefer to have my form on one page and the meter on the other. I want to have the page with the meter shown on the wall via a projector while donors donate from their phones.

    Also, the meter does not update instantly. How can I be sure the meter updates as soon as a person donates?

    1. Scott Ryer
      Scott Ryer Staff October 26, 2023 at 5:25 pm

      You don’t have to stack them. You can put the progress meter on a different page than the form. In fact, you can place the progress meter on multiple pages on your site, just like you can with the form. Since they share the same ID, they’ll be linked regardless of where they are placed.

  6. Mary Makowsky
    Mary Makowsky October 26, 2023 at 1:13 pm

    Hi again,

    I’ve implemented this plugin and used the shortcode as shown here: [gravityforms id="6" title="false" description="false" action="meter" field="5" count_label="Donated $%d" goal_label="Goal $%d" start="40132" goal="50000"]

    The meter is showing but the form is not displaying nor is the form code visible on inspection.

    I also tried with fewer parameters and had the same result.

    The test page link I’ve included is just using Gutenberg blocks – no page builder.

    Any advice? Thank you.

    1. Scott Ryer
      Scott Ryer Staff October 26, 2023 at 2:45 pm

      Hi Mary,

      When the action is set to meter, the plugin will only output the progress meter. The form itself requires an additional shortcode. You’ll likely want to stack the codes so the progress meter displays above the form. Something like this should do the trick:

      [gravityforms id="6" title="false" description="false" action="meter" field="5" count_label="Donated $%d" goal_label="Goal $%d" start="40132" goal="50000"] [gravityforms id="6" title="false" description="false"]

    Hello, thanks so much for this! Is it possible to set a start amount? My client received donations from an event and wants to continue the campaign on their website starting with their current total.

      Samuel Bassah Staff October 17, 2023 at 8:44 am

      Hi Anthony,

      Glad the snippet is useful to you. The CSS to change the colors can be found between lines 187 – 194 of the codes. You change the background color to whatever you want. If you’re also not comfortable making the changes directly within the code, you can use this custom CSS below to change the color;

      .gwpm-fill { background-color: #1E7AC4; } .gwpm-goal-reached .gwpm-fill { background-color: #42C414; }

      I hope this helps.

    Hi, I am using this shortcode “[gravityforms id="8" action="meter" field="payment_amount" count_label="Donations BE $%d" goal_label="Goal $%d" goal="7000"]” and it’s actually counting every payment on the progress bar even when the payment fails or cancel it still on the progress bar? Is there any way to solve this

    Also, can you combine the “payment amount” submitted into multiple gravity forms on one progress bar?

    Thank you so much, Valon

    1. Scott Ryer
      Scott Ryer Staff September 8, 2023 at 2:29 pm

      Hi Valon,

      Determining what is happening with the failed payments being added to the progress meter is going to require our support team to dig into the issue. If you have a Gravity Perks license, can you submit a request via our support form?

      Regarding combining multiple forms into one progress bar, this isn’t currently supported. Again, if you’re a Gravity Perks subscriber, we’ll be happy to look into adding support for this.

  9. Valon
    Valon August 27, 2023 at 8:03 pm

    Hi there,

    Great plugin! Is it possible to add a pre-amount of donations to the progress bar? So our goal is to collect 700k in total but we already collected 200k offline from the people and we want that to show on the progress bar?

    Thank you!

    1. Samuel Bassah
      Samuel Bassah Staff August 28, 2023 at 8:23 am

      Hi Valon,

      You can set up the form in such a way that Administrators are able to submit the form for offline payments without having to go through the payment gateway. What you’ll do is to set up conditional logic on the payment card and feed to hide the field and not process the payment feed if the user is not the administrator. This way you can add offline payments as entries which will also be recorded in the Progress meter. I hope this helps.


    2. Valon
      Valon August 30, 2023 at 10:05 am

      Hi Samuel. Thank you so much for your reply! I am not sure if I understood your solution correctly. Could you please explain it step by step how to do it, if that’s possible? Thank you very much!

    3. Valon
      Valon August 30, 2023 at 3:59 pm

      Thank you so much Matt, I now understand.

      I have another question though. So we currently have 4 forms with the same payment gateway. Is there any way to show the total amounts collected from 4 forms in this shortcode: [gravityforms id="211" action="meter" field="payment_amount" count_label="Donations $%d" goal_label="Goal $%d" goal="1000"]

      So currently this shortcode shows only payment collected to the form id that’s put on the shortcode. Thank you!

      Samuel Bassah Staff August 31, 2023 at 6:31 am

      Hi Valon,

      This will require some customization to the snippet. If you have an active Gravity Perks Pro license, you can contact us via our support form, so we can forward to our developers to assist with the custom snippet.


    1. Dario
      Dario April 18, 2023 at 9:16 am

      Hi, this should be possible with a little customization on the snippet’s code. If you have an Advanced or Pro license, you can reach out via our support form, and we should be able to help.

    1. David Smith
      David Smith Staff February 18, 2023 at 9:34 pm

      Hey Malka, this is possible with some customization.

      The concept is that you’d need to use the shortcode_atts_gf_progress_meter filter and write your own query to fetch the payment_amount for each of the form IDs. The plugin already accounts for a single form so you could use the existing query as a starting point.

      If this is something you’d like some assistance with, we provide free minor customizations to our Pro customers.

    The form exists and works fine with the usual gravity forms code

    works: [gravityform id="160" title="true"]

    1. Samuel Bassah
      Samuel Bassah Staff November 11, 2022 at 1:00 pm

      Hi Martin,

      That error message is generated by the Gravity Forms shortcode to display a form. The progress meter shortcode does not display any error message if the Form ID is incorrect. It only displays a blank progress meter on the page. Please check to confirm if the form is active or if the ID is correct.

    Is there any way to have the meter pull from the calculated total field? I use for processing payments, but only credit card donations are added to the payment_amount field and i’d like to also have the checks calculated.

      We already followed up on this via email, but I wanted to post this in the comment thread so other customers could see it.

      The shortcode should only add the progress meter, not the form, so this should work for your use.

    I noticed a version 1.1 is not available for this plugin. Would you all consider adding a changelog to the end of this entry to mention changes. If I didn’t see this mentioned in your Gravity Wiz Weekly I wouldn’t have known because the plugin doesn’t pull from GitHub to report an update like bigger plugins. Keep up the great work and I’ll keep reading the newsletter. (:

    Hi guys!

    No worries if this isn’t possible but we were curious if anyone might know how to add “commas” (as a “thousands” separator) into the goal=”XX,XXX” as well as the actual “%d” we result from the shortcode. Does anyone know if this might be possible by chance?

    The shortcode we wish we could write is: [gravityforms id="46" action="meter" field="29" count_label="Books %d" goal_label="Goal %d" goal="1,000,000"] but the commas, of course, ruin the goal number because it is in the shortcode.

    We thought it might have something to do with the “number_format” in PHP but after experimenting weren’t able to figure it out.

    If anyone happens to see this and might know, we would of course be grateful, be understand this is somewhat of a unique case so no worries if there isn’t time to respond.

    Thanks, GravityWiz Team!

      Just wanted to leave a note of thanks to publicly say that the GravityWiz team was amazing to work with! They responsibly acknowledged through their premium support service (which I had access to when I became a “Pro” Customer) that they could make no promises to have my request given the attention it needed in the timeframe I needed, but sure enough, they under promised and over delivered! David Smith (the GravityWiz lead developer) ended up taking time (on a travel day) to take a look at our request and update the snippet in time for our project, and it was a real gift and ended up working perfectly. Can’t thank you guys enough! Congratulations to the whole GravityWiz team for everything they have going. Thanks again! :-)

    Hi Samual,

    I’ve got an urgent question regarding Count Values in a Field. I would like to show count in the progress bar only after the payment is succesful. Now it shows immediately after the form is filled in and sent. Showing x donations when there isn’t any payments done. Please advice.

      Which shortcode are you using, because if you’re to use the Currency Goals, the count won’t increase until payment is finalized.

I’m currently not sure about the extent of the work involved to get this done, but if you’re a Gravity Perks customer, you can get in touch via our support form so we take a deeper look into this and see if this is something that we can add support for.

    Is is possible to use this to display time?

    Where the progress bar and label would display time in hours and minutes.

    Each of the option box values would be in minutes. The Goal time would be in total time of hours and minutes.

    Can you use this plugin to track selections made in option boxes. I would like to have 3 option boxes with 1 vote, 2 votes or 3 votes. Then the progress bar will count total number of votes from all submissions up to a goal amount. Is that possible?

      Hi Glenn,

      This should be possible if you set the value of the checkbox field options to 1,2,3 and then using a Number field, you’ll enable calculations to get the sum of the values in the checkbox. You will then use this shortcode [gravityforms id="3" action="meter" field="28" goal="25"], where 28 will be the ID of the calculation Number field to get the total number of votes for the progress meter. You can set the visibility of the Number field to hidden so it isn’t visible to the public.

    It would be amazing if there was a parameter to filter entries using the value of a given field. For instance, my org has a fund for medical treatments for our shelter pets. There is one donation form with each current pet listed as choices to donate. Before users get to the donation form, we have all the current needs posted on a page with the goal for each pet. The user can choose one of the pets where they’ll go to the donation form with that pet selected so we know where to apply the donation. For my purposes, I’d like to show a progress bar for each pet on the initial page. To do that, I would need a parameter to filter the entries on the donation form to the specific pet to get the correct progress total. I hope that made sense.

      Hi Michael,

      This an interesting use case and thanks for the detailed description of what you’re trying to do. This is currently not possible with the snippet, so I’ll forward your question to our developers as a feature request.

      Love this idea, Michael. I took a look at the code to see what was possible. It’s a little more robust of a feature than we can add on the fly but we’ve logged the feature request and will keep an ear out for other folks who want to do the same thing!

      Hi Andrew,

      You may want to check out this snippet, that allows you to edit the payment details on an entry. In this way, you could add the cheque payment manually to the entry which would then be reflected in the progress meter.
