gravity wiz weekly

Greetings, wizards! 

I’ve officially been an adult longer than I’ve been a child (my wife may disagree with that statement).

But I still remember some of the first things I did that really made me feel grown up.

Buying my own groceries, moving into my own place, creating my first fully customizable WooCommerce product powered by Gravity Forms…

Yup. I’m using my birthday intro to pitch you on Product Configurator. 😂

We just released a new version, ya know? 😉

New Release: Gravity Shop Product Configurator Beta 2

Product Configurator Beta 2 is now available and with it, one of our top requested features: Cart Item Editing!

In case you don’t remember, Product Configurator lets you create fully customizable, Gravity-Forms-powered WooCommerce products. 

So what do your shoppers do after they’ve configured the perfect suit, computer, or wand just the way they want only to realize that they made one little mistake?

Well, with Beta 2, they’d just click on the item in their cart to reload the product back into the product form, make their tweaks, and then finish checking out like that. 🫰

We like to think that if we make your customers happy, we make our customers happy. 😄

A Commitment to Compatibility

If there was ever a week that undeniably demonstrated our commitment to ensuring our products work well with each other and the rest of the Gravity Forms ecosystem, this week is it.

Here’s a quick list of perks/plugins that received compatibility updates this week. I think you’ll be impressed! And let’s be honest, we live to impress you wizards!

  1. Address Autocomplete + Reload Form
  2. File Upload Pro + Media Library
  3. Copy Cat + Gravity Forms Chained Selects
  4. Google Sheets + Populate Anything
  5. Inventory + Gravity Forms Stripe Add-on
  6. Populate Anything + Product Configurator

If I’ve piqued your curiosity you can peruse the full change log for all the hot goss.

Hot Take: Survey Add-On 4.0

Gravity Forms dropped Survey Add-On 4.0 last week and it is a total sleeper of a release.

All Survey field types now support conditional logic!

The community has been hungry for this feature for a long time and the Gravity Forms team did not disappoint with an exceptionally well-crafted implementation.

Watch my 4 minute hot take on this new feature above, including some inspiration for how you can put Survey field conditional logic to work on your forms.

New Free Plugin: Field Notes

Um, what does this field do again?

We wrote this simple plugin for a Gravity Perks customer who needed an in-editor digital sticky note to help them remember why a given field was required (noting both its historical context and other fields that depend on it) and, most importantly, to make that information accessible to other form editors on their site.

If you’re looking for another take on the same problem, our friends at Gravity Hopper have their own field notes module too.

Update Posts with Gravity Forms

Our world famous solution for updating posts created by Gravity Forms (with a GF form) keeps getting better and better.

This week we added support for updating subfields of ACF Repeater and Group fields. 🎉

Limit Datepicker to Current Month

Dynamically limit any Limit-Dates-enabled Datepicker to only show (and allow the selection of) dates for the current month. A great example of how easily our perks can be extended to suit your needs. 😊

Product Updates

Gravity Perks (v2.3.6)

  • Fixed issue where the plugin updater API response for perks included extra properties, such as the changelog, which could prevent plugin updates from showing up in some situations.

  • Updated “Entry Quantity Mode” to default to “Entry per line item” and deprecate “Entry per Quantity.” See release post for more details on the why.
