Gravity Wiz Weekly #154

gravity wiz weekly

Greetings, wizards!

We had another busy week helping customers do amazing things with Gravity Forms (and Gravity Perks, of course)… which means we’ve got a newsletter full of resources and tips to help you do amazing things with Gravity Forms and Gravity Perks too.

Knowledge sharing is caring. 🤗

Page Transitions: It’s “Official”

We dug up an old gem back in April and made it available for early access. Since then, we’ve been diligently collecting and implementing your feedback. Now, with the release of Beta 2, we are quite pleased to announce Page Transitions can be installed directly on your site via the Gravity Perks dashboard. 🤩

Page Transitions brings sexy back to your multi-page forms. We’re talking buttery smooth animations between pages and fluid, intelligent auto-progression. Not only will users complete your forms faster, they’ll actually enjoy the experience.

Ready to dazzle your customers?

Do More with Entry Blocks

Entry Blocks helps you do more with your entry data. Create team directories, digital art galleries, reporting tables – the possibilities are endless.

Over the last few weeks, we’ve been implementing a series of quality-of-life improvements to help you do even more with Entry Blocks.

More Data, Better Options – Display, filter, and sort by entry properties (like Date Created, Payment Status, Transaction ID, Created By, etc) or any registered entry meta (like Nested Forms’ Parent Entry ID, Easy Passthrough’s EP Token, and Address Autocomplete’s lat/long coordinates). 🙌

Actions for Deleted & Trashed – New actions are triggered before an entry is trashed or deleted. This allowed us to write a snippet for a Pro customer who wanted to delete an entry’s associated post when the entry was deleted via Entry Blocks. 🗑

Better Support for File Upload Fields – When editing an entry with Entry Blocks, File Upload fields are correctly repopulated with their current files. Using File Upload Pro to show image thumbnails? They work too! 🏞

Gravity Perks Integrations – We love teaching our perks how to play well with one another. Entry Blocks behaves perfectly with GP Read Only and GP Post Content Merge Tags now. 👔

New “Messages” Panel – Edit all your Entry Block messages (like the “No entries found” message and the Edit Form block’s confirmation message) contextually in the new Messages panel. ✍️

I recorded a quick video showing a few of these updates in action!

Question of the Week: How often do you use Gravity Wiz snippets in your work?

Last Week’s Results

Thank you for sharing your interest. We don’t need any more convincing! We’re starting to plan our first Q&A session now. Details to come in a future weekly. 😉


Creating Coupons for WooCommerce – Incentivize users to complete a form by offering them a reward – and what better reward than a coupon to share with a friend or on a future order!  This week, we added support for passing a callable function for any coupon meta parameter (like letting the submitting user select the WooCommerce product(s) for which the generated coupon should apply).

Inventory | Sold Out – When a choice’s inventory is exhausted (and you’ve configured the field to display the available inventory message), it will show something like: “Shrimp Tacos (0 tacos remaining)”. You might prefer to show a simple “Sold Out” message instead. 

PS – If you want to let people sign up on a waiting list for the exhausted option, we have a snippet for that too. 👌

QR Code | Create QR Code for New Users – Use the power of our newest perk to generate a QR code for each user that registers on your site. You can use these QR codes to do really cool things like letting the user check in for a company event or prepopulate forms with their profile data. Powerful stuff!

Alright, wizards. Until next week. 🧙🏻‍♂️
