gravity wiz weekly

Greetings, wizards! 

I’m an oversharer so I have to tell you… my oldest daughter is graduating from 5th grade today! It’s wild how fast they grow up, Kids and products, huh? 🥲

Hey, no sentimental crying! (I’m not crying. Are you crying? *sobs*) You’re going to need those eyes bright and clear to read every wizardly word in this week’s weekly. 😄

New Perk: Advanced Select Beta 1

Whether you’ve been hungry for better Drop Down and Multi Select fields or not, Advanced Select is going to make you drool.

It’s beautiful. It’s functional. And it’s performant. 🤤

Out of the box, Advanced Select modernizes the UX for select fields including support for search, mobile browsers, and an extensible library with loads of additional features. Accessibility (particularly for Multi Select fields) sees a massive boost with full keyboard navigation and screen reader support.

Populate Thousands of Choices

With Advanced Select’s tight integration with Populate Anything, you can filter and populate thousands of choices from massive datasets without sacrificing even a pinch of performance. Performance-focused features like filtering by search value, lazy loading choices, and infinite scroll make for a delightfully snappy user experience.

Load Images as Choices

Advanced Select also integrates with JetSloth’s popular Image Choices plugin to make populating images in Drop Down and Multi Select fields a reality. This integration also works with choices/images dynamically populated via Populate Anything!

Changelog Highlights: Aw! We’re compatible. 😊

This week’s changelog really highlights how important perk compatibility is to us at Gravity Wiz. Sure, there are some known limitations but we do everything we can to ensure the entire Gravity Perks suite works together seamlessly and intuitively.

This week, we improved the compatibility between…

✅ GP Google Sheets and GP Populate Anything – by honoring Populate Anything’s query limit where GP Google Sheets previously had a hardcoded limit of 1000. 

Learn more about populating Google Sheets data in Gravity Forms with Populate Anything.

✅ GP Multi-page Navigation and GP Page Transitions – by resolving an issue where the page navigation was duplicated when Page Transitions’ Soft Validation feature was enabled.

These perks are a dream team, dramatically improving the UX for multi-page forms by making them easier to navigate and frictionless to complete.

We care about compatibility with 3rd-party plugins as well, like Gravity Forms full suite of official add-ons and other popular plugins in the ecosystem. Check out the changelog for even more examples of our passion for playing nice with others. 🛝

Wizarding Workshop VII: GF + WooCommerce

So what is this new product line? We’re calling it Gravity Shop and it will offer a variety of products that allow you to integrate with WooCommerce in magical ways. 🧙‍♂️

Our first product will be Gravity Shop Product Configurator! 

This upcoming plugin makes it easy to connect Gravity Forms with your WooCommerce products, allowing you to offer advanced customization options (e.g. engravings, uploaded files for printing, booking/ticket info, etc) and so much more.

In this workshop, we’ll walk you through each aspect of this new product and show you the key differentiators between GS Product Configurator and other solutions on the market.

Spotlight: Automating Membership Registrations with Populate Anything

michelle hayes remanufacturing testimonial

Remanufacturing Industries Council (Reman Council) members are companies, and large ones. When a new company becomes a member, employees from that company get access to a plethora of resources offered through Reman Council’s website. 

Michelle Hayes built Reman Council’s membership portal using Gravity Forms & Gravity Perks. She found that once a new company had registered, managing the registration process of each company’s associated employees was a bit cumbersome. So she employed Populate Anything to speed up the process. 

In this spotlight, we explore at a high level exactly how she got it done.

Populate Anything | Performant Unique Results (for the Database Object Type)
