Have you met Cole before? He’s our marketing wizard and he’s amazing. Every week as I write the first draft of this newsletter, I say, “Cole, I’m really going to try and keep this one light.”
And every week, I fail. 😅
We just have so many new, exciting things to share each week. And this week is no exception. Ready to dive in?
Limit Dates: Exceptional Exceptions
Limit Dates enjoyed some administrative quality-of-life improvements to its exceptional Exceptions UI this week.
Exceptions allow you to override the rules you’ve configured for your Date field, either enabling a date that would otherwise be disabled or disabling a date that would otherwise be enabled. For example, if you only take reservations on weekdays but would like to accept reservations next weekend, you could add those dates as exceptions.
The latest version of Limit Dates now orders exceptions by date (ascending). Additionally, exceptions will be displayed in the same date format configured for the current Date field. These tweaks should make exceptions exceptionally easier to manage.
Entry Blocks: No Label Left Behind
Entry Blocks makes displaying and editing Gravity Forms entries on the frontend easy – some might even say fun!
We want every part of Entry Blocks to be fully customizable, and this week, we took another small step on that quest. All labels in the Entries Table block (”Edit”, “View”, and “Delete” links) and the Pagination block (”Next” and “Previous” links) can now be edited right in the block settings. 🎉
What else do you want to customize in Entry Blocks? Comment below. 🧙♂️
Wizarding Workshop Recap
We hosted our second Wizarding Workshop last week and it was a BLAST! 💥
Curious about the highlights? Well, we…
- Explored our newest perk, File Renamer.
- Dove deep into some advanced customizations of the Map field.
- Answered some excellent pre-submitted questions.
- Shared our thoughts on the Gravity Flow acquisition and what that means for the community.
Oh, and apologies for the horrible video quality. We didn’t realize Google Meet only saved at 720p. 😭
Question of the Week
One of my favorite things about WordPress is how much access it gives you to customize it. Gravity Forms (and Gravity Perks) follow WordPress’ lead and include hundreds of hooks, giving you near-complete control over form and function.
So, when it comes to implementing these actions and filters, this week’s question is…
How do you prefer to install PHP snippets?
As always, come back next week to see how your fellow form builders voted. 🗳️

Community Contribution | Auto Select Only Choice w/ Chained Selects – Gravity Forms’ Chained Selects add-on provides a new field that lets you drill down through a dataset (think year/make/model selects).
Long-time customer Gui wasn’t a fan of having to manually select a choice when there was only one choice available. Wouldn’t it be better if selects with only a single option were preselected? Gui thought so, and we agree. Check out the awesome new snippet Gui contributed to the Snippet Library!
