I’m a tidy person. I like things neatly organized, and that extends to Gravity Forms. If a form is no longer needed, I deactivate it. This simple action makes certain that active forms are properly represented in the forms list, and that makes it easier for me to manage those forms.
One problem I run into is that the default view in the forms list displays both active and inactive forms. I have to click the Active filter after loading the form list every single time I go to the list.
The time to click the filter and wait for the list to refresh adds up over time, so we built a plugin to change the default form list view to active forms.
Using the Plugin
Using this plugin is simple. Start by confirming that you have Gravity Forms installed and activated. Then, install and active the plugin.
Once activated, the default Forms view will display Active forms instead of All forms. There’s no configuration needed.
The other filters will still be functional. You can view all, inactive, or trashed forms by clicking the respective filter. The view simply defaults to Active when no other filter is specified.
