Create a custom preview page before submitting

    Hi everybody,

    I'm trying to setup a preview page in order to let users review their data before submitting a multipage form (I'm using the new beta).
    Since GF does not support form preview I'm thinking about doing as follows:

    - adding a final form page containing an html block;
    - put into the block a function displaying the values of the forms filled in by the user.

    Two questions in order to verify if it can be done:
    - are the values passed between form pages stored in session variables that can be printed out?
    - can be php code put into a html block in order to display (formatting them) the sessionv variables?

    Thanks in advance. luca

  3. Hello Fronzo, I will have to look into if this will be possible I know it won't via the HTML blocks as they don't know the form field values as they don't exist until the form is submitted and the HTML blocks are part of the form itself. We do plan on adding form confirmation capabilities in a future release, but currently it would have to be done via a customization.

  4. hey Carl,

    How difficult would it be to create a duplicate layout of a form when the form is created?

    ie: exactly the same as the original form but instead of input fields it has $_POST[] variables

    As long as the variables are in the header, or set to global the final submit button/confirm button will have the same base functionality as a single form would.

    Perhaps the issue arrives when the user clicks 'edit' and is sent back to the original form? (which would also explain difficulties with people using GF to make profile pages and 'edit profile')

    What issues and concerns do you face in this?

    Exactly. The issue arises when a user decides to change something in the fiields he filled in. If the confirmation page is based on a new form with fields populated by $_post variables passed by first form you can't go back and edit the values.

    It could be great if in a multipage form the content of the user submitted fields could be passed to a final page (belonging to the same form), displaying all the user inputs and being able to go back as in any multipage form for editing.

    "It could be great if in a multipage form the content of the user submitted fields could be passed to a final page (belonging to the same form), displaying all the user inputs and being able to go back as in any multipage form for editing."

    This would be hugely helpful for my usage, too. (+1)

  7. Post-Preview would be very nice.

  8. Just a thought reading this thread: it would be great to be able to use GF as a front-end post/profile editor.

    Having a post preview page before final submission would be extremly useful. Actually, I am surprised that this feature does not yet exist. We miss it.

  10. @webmasterkdun We understand, it is a feature we plan on adding later this year. Now that we have multi-page forms with the release of Gravity Forms v1.5 (final release next week), that will be one of the features we are going to be adding when we work on subsequent updates.

  13. Yeeaah, I need this too! Could really use this now on a client site, but will have to find another way of doing this until it's implemented.

  14. Hello,

    After reading this thread, I'm wondering if this feature has finally been added to GF. Last post was dated two months ago, so I'm hoping it's available now. Is it?

    I also need to preview information and allow the user to make changes before final submittion.

    Thank you!

  15. Preview before submission is not built in. You can do it with jQuery though:

  16. Hi, I really need this feature, too. Now I have 1.6.3.2.1 ver GF. But I can't find it yet. Is there any plugins or add-on which add preview feature?

    Posted 8 years ago on Friday March 16, 2012 | Permalink
  17. I could really use this feature as well. I notice it's been a year since Carl said, "later this year". Any word on when / if this may be coming through?
