The Suite Life (of Gravity Perks)

We have quite a few noteworthy updates to the Gravity Perks suite this week, including a new version of Gravity Perks itself. 

Gravity Perks – Multisite wizards rejoice! Gravity Perks has been improved to run far more performantly on Multisite installs. We also snuck in a few improvements for Gravity Perks interactions with our licensing API.

Address Autocomplete – The new gpaa_marker_set action allows you to do things like display an Info Window when the marker has been set in the Map field. We also updated the marker to only be set after an address is entered.

File Renamer – This flexible file organizer received a few tweaks to ensure that file renaming was better aligned with user expectation. Plus, it received a couple new hooks to control how slashes are handled in filenames.

See the changelog below for the full scoop. 🍨

Prevent Duplicate Selections Across Drop Downs – GP Inventory is a great way to control how many times a choice can be selected in a Drop Down field but what if you want to prevent the same choice from being selected in multiple Drop Downs? This snippet will do the trick!

Require Unique Values – Want to ensure that the emergency contact information is different from the registrant? This snippet makes it easy! This week, it was updated to make the unique value comparison case-insensitive. If you prefer the original case-sensitive functionality, just set the new β€œcase_sensitive” option to true.
