Authenticating Users

  1. We use BuddyPress and have the add-on for that. Works great for registrations. Now, we want some forms to be exclusively for users and I see the checkbox where I can make the form for logged in users only.

    However, I was wondering if Gravity Forms can recognize and pass the username of the individual so we don't have to ask for details like name and email every time they use the form.

    Do you have something you can point me to that would explain how this can be accomplished?

  2. If you check the box to ensure the user is logged in, then you can use merge tags for the default values in the form fields, to save your users the trouble of filling out the redundant details every time. They're detailed here: http://www.gravityhelp.com/documentation/page/Merge_Tags

    Here are a couple of them:
    {user:display_name}
    {user:first_name}
    {user:last_name}
    {user:email}
    {user:meta_key}
