Deleted form goes into a "trash bin"

  1. I just had a client somehow accidentally delete a complex form I had created for them (*cries*)

    It would be awesome if there was some kind of temporary trash thing it got thrown into instead of being immediately deleted. This could be similar to the way WordPress now does that with posts/pages/etc.

    Thoughts?

  2. Sorry to hear about the lost form and thanks for the suggestion. We'll keep it in mind.

    Gravity Forms already integrates with the Members Plugin so you can define roles and set permissions for users. One of those is the ability to delete forms.

    That should help you avoid the same scenario in the future.

  3. We actually have discussed having a trash bin, it probably will be a feature we add in a future release. With WordPress 2.9 implementing the trash bin functionality... it makes sense for us to add it to Gravity Forms to keep it in line with the rest of WordPress.

  4. having the ability to export the form and importing forms would be good for this as well then at least we can back the forms and if they are deleted we can import them again. thi along with the trash can idea to save data would be brilliant

  5. We've discussed that as well. The import/export feature will be coming pretty soon so it should make backups and using forms across multiple installations a lot easier.

    Still no Trash component? Seems like every other facet of Wordpress (Posts, Pages, Media, Comments,... even Spam Comments, etc.) has a Trash designation. I don't see that available yet within Gravity Forms. Or am I missing it?

    Also, maybe making it tougher to Delete would help -- presently, a client mistakenly clicked on the Delete Form hypertext link instead of the Update Form button, which are in close proximity to one another. Maybe that Delete link doesn't even need to be on the Form Editor (so remove it completely); rather, leave it within the general Forms list page with its options upon mouse-over only, like is currently in place (right after Duplicate).

    Thoughts?

    while you're at it, can you suggest a favicon for Gravity's help pages, so that when it is a browser (such as Firefox) has a "Pinned Tab" it shows at the top? :) worth a shot!

    I was referring to a favicon on pages such as this Gravity Forms forum.... there is no favicon visible for this page. See the following for a screenshot of my Pinned Tabs in Firefox: http://3cstudio.com/temp/gf-favicon-null.png (last pinned tab on the right)....

    Ah, as for that, it won't be an issue soon, as you can read about here: http://www.gravityhelp.com/gravity-forms-standard-support-change-announcement/
