GF v1.7beta1 - Enable form persistence

    Although I see an 'Enable form persistence' checkbox under Form Settings for the new beta release of GF, I do not see any reference to this feature in the release notes or dev notes. No mention of it in the forums either.

    Although I click the checkbox, it becomes unclicked after I attempt to save my settings. i.e.: it doesn't work for me.

    Will this feature allow for the form user to save a page of a multipage? I am hooppppiiinnggg so!! If it is, can you provide guidance on whether:

    - does user have to click 'next' for the form to save? or will you integrate a 'save now' button?

    - will the form values erase themselves if user attempts to submit the form with an incorrect field or required field missing? (currently a bug of the data-persistance-addon)

    - i know GF does not give ETAs but I am curious to know if it works now but maybe broken for me? or it will be included in an upcoming release?

    - i have so many other questions but i guess ill have to wait for official announcement... (ie: will user have to be signed in?... does this only work on multipage forms?... does data save in WP database or as a cookie user's comp?)

    i am very excited for this feature as you can probably tell.

    thanks! ben

  2. That text is not coming from the Gravity Forms plugin. It comes from the Gravity Forms Data Persistence Add-on (which was developed by a 3rd party.) It's available here: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/gravity-forms-data-persistence-add-on/

    It's in this file (line 116):
    http://plugins.svn.wordpress.org/gravity-forms-data-persistence-add-on/trunk/persistent_multipage_forms.php

    Do you have that plugin installed currently?

    Yes I do have it installed and it does not seem to be working with the 1.7beta1.

    I will keep testing. Maybe I have something configured wrong.

    Thanks, Ben

    I love the new admin interface by the way. Much better.

  4. Please check with the developer of that plugin. It's probable they need to update their plugin to be ready for Gravity Forms 1.7.

    you are correct. thank you. problem solved, thread closed.

    I decided to use this plugin instead:
    https://github.com/soulseekah/Gravity-Forms-Saved-Forms-Addon

    You will see it is updated more often, includes more features, and works great with the recent 1.7beta2 release.

    The author has added multipage support and is now troubleshooting minor issues. Although there is already a 'save for later' button at the bottom of each page, he has also agreed to make the 'Previous' and 'Next' button save the data as well.

    I highly recommend it and encourage you to check it out. The author is active on support, whereas the persistent addon author does not offer much help - even after offering to pay for an upgrade.

    I think if GF has plans to include this feature in a future release, this would be a great place to start.
