gravity wiz weekly issue 223 cover

Greetings, wizards! 

It’s been a whirlwind week so I’m going a little light on visuals for this weekly – but you know I’d never skimp on value. Wizard’s honor. 🫡

Now let’s conjure up some mental imagery! 

[Recap] Workshop IX: Entry Blocks Unlocked

Our workshops take a bit of effort to put together but, as usual, they always feel worth it after they’re done. Workshop IX was no different! Consider Entry Blocks fully unlocked.

We explored the fundamentals of what makes Entry Blocks the easiest way to display, edit, duplicate, and delete your Gravity Forms entry data. We delved into the power of the new Entries Loop layout. And, of course, we saved some time for all of your questions too!

If you’re curious to explore our previous workshops, we have a playlist with all of them!

Magical Mentions

  • Hiring! We’re looking for a Content Writer, a scroll scrabbler, a quill crafter, a word wizard. Join us on our quest to make the most useful (and fun) Gravity Forms content in all the land!
  • Roadmap: We’ve just finalized our plans for Q2! Teasers: Gravity Connect, GP Google Sheets 1.2, GP Submit to Access. It’s going to be a wild quarter. 🤠
  • Nested Forms: The field_values parameter is no longer available in the session cookie to avoid the cookie getting too large with big forms. This may impact some 3rd-party customizations but we expect any issues to be very niche edge cases.

Spotlight: A Self-managed Lawyer Directory using Entry Blocks

We’ve been on a tear with Entry Blocks. First a major upgrade and release, then a workshop yesterday. It only felt appropriate to keep the good vibes going with a spotlight — something tangible that can show you Entry Blocks out there in the real world. 

entry blocks women's lawyer directory

Richard Best, a rather experienced wizard, built a women’s lawyer directory using Entry Blocks with one goal in mind: provide a practical means of promoting women lawyers and support equitable hiring. This platform allows lawyers to quickly create their own profiles, and once created, make edits as needed from the front end. It’s a strong example of what Entry Blocks can unlock for you.

What else? A touch of magic, for sure.

New Resources

Enable Advanced Select Globally

When you discover the most beautiful, searchable, extensible Drop Down replacement in the world, it’s only natural that you’d want to apply it to all of your Drop Down and Multi Select fields. We understand!

And we’ve made it just a bit easier for you to do that with this fresh little snippet. It also supports a form_ids parameter to enable Advanced Select to a specific form instead.

Create Coupons on Form Submission

This powerful snippet encourages users to submit your forms by dynamically generating a coupon code on submission. It’s a simple, compelling incentive to engage with your site, sign up for your newsletter, or purchase your products.

This week, we added support for requiring a specific set of fields to be filled out in order to generate a coupon. This is useful if the fields are optional on the form but you only want to generate a coupon if they’re provided.

Custom File Paths in Dropbox (with File Renamer)

File Renamer will automatically rename and organize files uploaded to Gravity Forms, powered by flexible templates with support for dynamic values.

Oh, you knew that? Well did you know about this handy dandy snippet that extends those capabilities to files being imported into Dropbox too? Did you!?
