Gravity Forms Mass Import


NOTE: THIS PLUGIN DOES NOT AND WILL NOT SUPPORT GF 1.9+. For information on possible alternatives please visit the plugin site: Aryan Duntley

This plugin allows Gravity Forms users to import entries from a CSV file

A new item will appear in you gravity forms side menu called “Import Entries”. There you will be provided with a selection box to pick which form you would like to import into. Once selected, you will be provided with the “Labels” of your form that will be needed as the headers of your CSV file. Make sure that you use those exactly. If you have erroneous or unavailable headers in your CSV file, an error will be generated. Please note, that this plugin is not designed to work with the gravity forms post fields or pricing/product fields.

A new feature allows users to specify the date a record (or entry) is listed as having been created. To do this, you must create an extra field in your form editor titled “actualPostDate”. You should make this field a single line text field. Make sure that “actualPostDate” is included in your headers as will be indicated in the required headers list when you select your form before csv entry. Finally, the format for entry is the MYSQL date time format (2005-08-05 10:41:13).

This plugin was created for users who wish to use Gravity Forms as an online database/data entry option and wish to import data from a previous system.
