Can GravityForms replicate this simple Excel sheet?

  1. whatchamacallit


    I see GravityForms has many uses, and therefore I was wondering if I can use GravityForms to replicate a simple spreadsheet, as seen here:

    Basically, every week our basketball team has a practice session. Realizing that everyone has schedules, we created a spreadsheet where each team member can go and sign-up (using the drop-down menu in each cell which has a "Yes" or "No" option). Based on that, the daily total is generated, and accordingly the right number of equipment is brought for the practice.

    The reason we want to try GravityForms is because we already have a Wordpress site for our team, and having GravityForms would make it such that we don't have any external service (like Google Docs) and can just have a tab with this "form" on it in the website itself. The drop-downs can be changed to simple checkboxes, and the names would be hardcoded in too. One important feature is having the daily total show up. We actually have a large team of 40 players - this Google Docs spreadsheet is just a sample I created.

    We really like the look and ease of GravityForms, but is replicating this even possible?

    Thank you.

    So Gravity Forms can record the data, but it can't present it the same way. You could export a CSV of submissions between date 1 and date 2 to see who said yes/no. But there is no "total" function/option in the back-end.

    All my best!
