Greetings, wizards! 

Our 46th perk has arrived. And you’re going to love it. 😍

In fact, let’s just save ourselves some time and continue… 😉

Here to Save the Day: GP Advanced Save & Continue

GP Advanced Save & Continue (GPASC) takes the worry out of working with long forms. No more fretting about losing your progress. No more confusion tracking down that magic token to restore your previous data.

GPASC can auto-save and auto-load your previous drafts creating a frictionless, stress-free form submission experience.

Working with multiple drafts? GPASC gives you indispensable tools for managing drafts. View, resume, delete, and start new drafts without writing a line of code.

This functionality couldn’t possibly work for unauthenticated users, right? Wrong! GPASC works with logged-in users and visitors – and – even accounts for data privacy by requesting permission from users who aren’t logged in.

Ready to bring peace of mind to everyone using your forms?

The Suite Spot: Highlights

Entry Blocks – The Pagination block received a little overhaul with the addition of support for page number links in addition to the existing next/previous links. Both can be toggled independently.

Address Autocomplete + Easy Passthrough – Address coordinates can now be passed from one form to another with Easy Passthrough!

Nested Forms – The Row ID summary column will now show up for Nested Form fields in the Entry Detail view. It’ll also be displayed by default when using the :gpnf_table modifier snippet.

QR Code – The in-field scanner now works with Paragraph Text fields when enabled by filter. Super useful when you’re scanning data that includes new lines or line breaks.

Wizarding Workshops

Workshop IV: Advanced Save & Continue + Custom Page Transitions

Missed our last workshop? No worries. We’ve got the recording all cleaned up and ready for you to consume at your leisure.

Enjoy a thorough demo of Advanced Save & Continue (now released!), a crash course on creating custom page transitions with Page Transitions, and some really great questions from our community!

Workshop V: Unleash GF OpenAI

Our next workshop is going to be exclusively focused on using our free OpenAI plugin to take your Gravity Forms to the next level. We’ll also be answering your questions on OpenAI, and yes, there will be lots of real-world examples. 😉

New Resources

Classic Snippet | Post Permalink Merge Tag

This oldie provides the ever-useful {post_permalink} merge tag and hasn’t been updated since its inception. We ended that drought this week with support for outputting the post permalink for posts generated by the GF Advanced Post Creation add-on.

Populate Anything | Ignore Validation for “No Results”

When populating choices with Populate Anything, your filters may return no results (particularly applicable when filtering by user input). By default, if a field is required and has no results, it will fail validation. This snippet allows you to ignore the required validation in this scenario.

Unique ID | Sequential IDs by User Selected Date

We previously shared a snippet that offered daily sequential IDs. This week, we had a Pro customer who needed the same functionality but where the date is selected by the user rather than based on the current date. When a Pro customer asks for a minor customization, we aim to please!
