Nested Forms Nears 1.0, Easy Passthrough Revealed, Support Optimizations Update.

gravity wiz weekly

Greetings, wizards.

We’ve been busy little wizards since our last update. ?

Nested Forms Nears 1.0

Nested Forms draws ever closer to 1.0. We’ve just added support for one of the most highly requested features: exporting child entries alongside their parent entry! More details to follow when the docs are updated.

Easy Passthrough Revealed

The great mystery perk, Easy Passthrough has been released. It’s a great addition to our suite of perks and, combined with Populate Anything, gives you near-total control of how and what data is populated into your Gravity Forms.

Progress Update: Support Optimizations

Back in February, we shared our commitment to optimizing your support experience with us. One of our five primary goals was to add additional support staff. In our last update, we officially introduced Scott who has been working with us since April and is now the support lead. Last week we brought on a new part-time support wizard. With such solid coverage on support, our new focus will be expanding our documentation to provide new walk-throughs and cover more FAQs. More updates soon!

Alright, wizards. Until next week. ⚡️

    No way to contact you without having an active license but I cannot purchase due to possible site errors . I have tried to purchase using IE, Edge, Chrome, and Safari on iPhone.

    If I select PayPal the website does nothing when clicking “purchase”

    If I select credit card, the website demands I fill out all info but there are no fields to enter any info, credit card or otherwise.

    I click on Support page but can not contact you due to no active license. This is my only option.

      Figured it out. Apparently I’m such an old customer that you probably changed a few things in the last 10 years or so. I had to update my profile to include my name and email address before the passthrough to payment would work. :)

      Oh, wow! That sounds really annoying. I’m happy you were able to figure it out. I’ll dig in and see if I can recreate/fix for other folks. Thank you for the deets!
