Can I build a Frontend Form for Members?

    I use Digital Access Pass (DAP) for my membership plugin. I want to have a textarea form for my members to enter a list of domains they intend to use my plugin on. Each member will be logged in and I want to store the data they entered in along with their DAP ID so that I can populate the textarea with the previous data they entered.

    So the user logs into my site. They go to the license page and enter their domains and save the data. They can come back and change it anytime they want. I can then query their data for use in my activation process.

    Can I post data to the database and then repopulate it on their member page using GF?

  2. Yes, you can do this, but it would require some customization. Gravity Forms is designed to collect and store data. Beyond that, you will need to handle displaying and possibly updating the data. Editing of entries on the front end is being considered for the 1.7 release of Gravity Forms, but it's not currently built in.

  3. Any update on this feature? Based on the description on the sales site, I was under the impression that the "Gravity Forms Entry Manager" supported this basic function, especially since it has been on the roadmap for at least a year.

    This was a factor in my purchasing decision for a developer license. If the implementation of this feature is still quite far in the future, I need to ask for a refund.

  4. Front end editing is not included. The Entry Manager referred to is an admin function, after logging in to your WordPress site.

    There are 3rd party plugins which allow front end editing if you need that.
