Pods Gravity Forms Add-On 1.4 Release
We’re very happy to announce the release of Pods Gravity Forms Add-On 1.4. This release is our biggest update yet and includes support for the recent Gravity Forms 2.3 database changes, along with many fixes and several new enhancements that build on our continued support of the Gravity Forms product.
- Full Support for Front-End Editing: We’ve supported publishing posts from Gravity Forms before, but now all of our fields are supported — and populating a Gravity Form with an existing post is now also fully supported. If you place the form on the single post template, the loading of existing post data into the form will automatically be handled. Advanced configurations are supported through the use of the filter
pods_gf_addon_edit_idto specify what post is being edited.
- Admin Entry Updates: A new form feed option allows updates to the entry including payment status changes to be synced with the associated pod item created by the initial form submission. This work also improves integration with Gravity View and Gravity Flow.
- WP-CLI batch syncing of all entries to a Pod: Our new WP-CLI command will create and update items based on all of the entries for a Gravity Form
wp pods-gf sync --form=123 --feed=43
- New List Field Relationship Mapping: When you map a GF List Field to a Pod Relationship field (a relationship to a Pod of any type), it will automatically create the related items in the relationship. It will map the GF List field Column names to the related Pod field labels. New filters are available to customize the mapping
pods_gf_field_columns_mappingand final related row before saving
- New List/Address Field support: When you map a GF List Field or Address Field to a Pod “code” field, a serialized array of data representing the values from the GF field submission will be saved.
- Many additional improvements, fixes, and stability of field value mapping can be seen in the changelog. We released 1.4.1 with some additional fixes for over-zealous caching.
Front-end Editing does not fully support populating File, Name, or Address fields currently. If you pass new information into these fields, the changes will be reflected on submission. If you do not upload a new file in the Gravity Form file field, they will retain prior value in the pod item upon edit. Form Entry edits are fully supported in the sync back to the post.
Videos Coming Soon
We are in the process of making some quick instructional videos for these new features to make it easier for our users to incorporate Gravity Forms and Pods into your sites. Stay tuned!
