Gravity Wiz Weekly 220

Better inline confirmations, Advanced Select + Gravity Flow, conditional logic for Checkbox inventory, filtering by Date Drop Down fields, and other tasty treats.

Greetings, wizards! 

I apologize in advance for the onslaught of updates you are about to receive. This is why we can’t skip a week. There’s just too much to share. 😅

So… you ready? 😄

Advanced Save & Continue: Better Inline Confirmations

Advance your Gravity Forms Save & Continue functionality with auto-saving, auto-loading, and draft management.

Advanced Save & Continue (GPASC) has a little gem of an option that lets you display your Save & Continue confirmation inline. This week, we made some sweet improvements to this feature.

First, if you’re using the Gravity-Forms-recommended snippet to populate the Save & Continue email address, GPASC will now honor the provided email.

Next, the inline S&C confirmation displays below the form. We’ve added a new filter that allows you to position the inline confirmation wherever you want. Here’s a sample snippet that positions it above the form.

Last, we’ve updated the inline S&C confirmation to always post back to the page it was submitted from. This makes the experience feel a lot more seamless.

GS Product Configurator + Save & Continue

Customizable WooCommerce products powered by Gravity Forms, deeply integrated with both ecosystems — it just works.

Speaking of Save & Continue, Product Configurator now supports it!

Complex product configurations or long membership registrations benefit massively with the convenience of being able to pick up where you left off. Combine Product Configurator with Advanced Save & Continue (or Gravity Forms’ vanilla S&C) to remove friction from your ecommerce experience.

Other Tasty Highlights

GP Advanced Select + Gravity Flow

Advanced Select gives you the most beautiful, searchable, extensible Drop Down and Multi Select fields ever. Plus, they’re capable of dynamically populating massive datasets.

Gravity Flow supports a number of Workflow fields, some of which are select or multi-select input types. Advanced Select now supports all of these fields. Just add the desired Workflow field to your form and enable Advanced Select from the Perks field settings.

GP Inventory: Conditional Logic for Checkbox Inventory

Easy, flexible inventory management for Gravity Forms.

GP Inventory provides the ability to create conditional logic rules based on the amount of inventory available for a given field (or selected option). This is useful for things like showing a “inventory low” message or revealing additional options if a product is exhausted.

This week, we added support for creating conditional logic rules based on Checkbox fields!

GP Populate Anything: Date Drop Down Fields

Dynamically filter and populate field choices and values with posts, users, taxonomies, terms, Gravity Forms entries, and databases. Pretty much anything!

This week, Populate Anything learned how to filter by Date Drop Down fields. Previously, you could only filter by a specific input in the field (e.g. year, month, day) – now you can filter by the combined date value of the entire field.

Spotlight: Event Experiences Made Awesome with Gravity Forms OpenAI

When you walk into Confex, the UK’s most significant events-focused conference, you’re greeted by a large touch screen display. 

This touch screen allows you to use natural language to describe why you’ve come. 

“I’m interested in sustainable event management and cutting edge event design ideas.”

You’re then provided with a personalized agenda, directions to each seminar, a list of speakers you may be interested in, and the ability to scan a QR code and take your personalized agenda with you. 

This tablet isn’t part of Confex. It’s a smart marketing move on Joel Armsdens part — in a bid to showcase his own event tech solutions at their event. 

Joel’s AI Info Point makes excellent use of Gravity Forms OpenAI to understand natural language and match interests with the right events, speakers, and more. We simply had to explore it!

Make Your Gravity Forms Validation Errors Mobile-friendly(er)

This little snippet is still around making validation errors in your forms that much easier for your mobile users to work through. In fact, we’ve had a lot of users say it’s improved the validation UX for their forms on desktops as well. We made a minor improvement this week for multi-page forms.

Populate All Results if Search Value is Empty (with Advanced Select)

Advanced Select integrates tightly with Populate Anything. In fact, you can use the in-field search value powered by Advanced Select to actually filter Populate Anything’s results.

This means you can safely (e.g. with zero performance impact) give your customers the ability to search through thousands and thousands of choices without attempting to populate all of them directly into the field.

Some folks find the UX of requiring users to search before any results are displayed a bit odd. If that’s you, just use this snippet and the first 50 results will be displayed before any search value is entered. Users can then infinitely scroll through results until they find what they want – or – enter a search value to find exactly what they’re after.
