gravity wiz weekly

Greetings, wizards! 

Confession. I was tempted to skip this week’s weekly.

Clay and I are off on a partner’s trip, dreaming big about the future of Gravity Wiz and hashing out plans to make those dreams a reality.

But I just couldn’t leave you all stranded without your weekly dose of Gravity Forms magic! So let’s dive in and I’ll keep exploring the Windy City tomorrow. 

New Release: Page Transitions 1.0

Animating the transition from one form page to the next creates a delightful experience for your users. Automatically move users to the next page after the last field on the current page is completed via auto-progression, and you’ve got a wonderfully efficient user experience that will convert far better and feel oh so good.

With the release of Page Transitions 1.0, we’ve upped the ante. Here are the highlights:

  • Enjoy a new, modern transition library that sets this perk up for a bright future, including new page transitions styles.
  • Support for page conditional logic (our most popular feature request to date) means Page Transitions will now honor conditional pages and correctly skip them as configured.
  • Improved responsiveness because your users aren’t always on their desktops. Transitions are still buttery smooth on mobile devices too!
  • Beefy test coverage so you can upgrade with confidence. We’ve fixed dozens of bugs during the beta and added tests for each so they’ll never pop up again. 

Ready to bring your forms to life? 

Short and Suite Highlights

QR Code – We’ve upped the default QR code error correction from “low” to “medium” to improve the reliability of generated codes. If you want to tweak the error correction level, use this new filter.

Entry Blocks – Filter and order by unregistered entry meta! Practical example? Hide orphaned child entries (from Nested Forms) by only allowing entries with no “_gpnf_expiration” meta key.

Copy Cat – This week, Copy Cat became advanced with the ability to copy to and from Advanced Phone Fields. Copying phone numbers from one field to another is now a breeze!

  • And cap it off with answers to your most pressing questions.

Can I save you a seat? 😄

New Resources

Form Editor Buff | Show Page Name in Form Editor

If you’re working with multi-page forms, sometimes keeping track of which page is which in the editor can be a challenge. This handy snippet will output the page title in the Page field so you can easily identify your pages.

More Editor Buffs | Copy Cat Field Indicators

Speaking of form editor buffs, here’s another snippet that shows indicators next to your field labels identifying if it is a source or target field for Copy Cat. Just one little boon to make editing your forms a little easier.

Easy Passthrough | One-time Use Tokens

Easy Passthrough makes passing data from one form to another a cinch. One popular use case is to send an email for the user to complete a second form at a later date using an Easy Passthrough token.

But what if that token is granting permission to complete a form that should only be usable once? This snippet will save the day by deleting a token after it is used. Perfect, right?
