Group options to combine payment for form export

  1. Currently, everything is output into it's own line. If I were to say run 3 classes and someone choose to take more than 1, instead of outputting the total of each class, I'd like the 2 classes chosen to be combined out output into one field on both the form and the excel file.

    Currently, my form has a lot of option and the end result on output is absolutely ridiculous when viewing and when inputting into my database.

  2. That's how the {all_fields} merge tag works. But you don't have to use that. You can select text vs. HTML for your notification, and independent of that, you can insert individual fields into your notification in whatever format makes sense for you. The {all_fields} tag is a helper, but if it does not help you, there's no reason to use it. Try creating a custom notification email and see how it goes.

  3. Hi Chris

    I think you misunderstand. the 'all fields' merge tag lists all the fields line by line, it doesn't actually combine the separate classes together.

    If you had a way to check off "I want the values of A & B to be combined into one field upon output" it would make gravity forms that much more powerful. And it would make a heck of a lot more sense.

    No one wants a form or a database to output 10 pages long. I actually paid the $200 bucks for the developer version because you guys told me it could do what I wanted and now I have to spend another $600+ to get it to ACTUALLY work the way I've stated above... Lesson learned

  4. @Mediavandals Chris explained above that the {all_fields} merge tag is a helper field that let's you quickly output ALL of the submitted form field data using a single merge tag. It automatically formats it in a standard table display. BUT as Chris mentions above, if this isn't what you want to do then you don't have to use it.

    You can format your email notification however you want using the individual field merge tags (NOT the {all_fields} merge tag). You can output merge tags for each field individually and use text and HTML to format it however you want.

    So if you want to combine the values of field A and field B then you'd use the merge tags for field A and field B and output them side by side.
