How can the admin edit the user's meta data?

  1. Software I'm using:
    - Gravity Forms: 1.6.11
    - Gravity Forms User Registration Add-On: 1.5.beta1
    - Wordpress (single site): 3.5

    I've configured a page with the form that should allow the user to update its data. User can access it and it's populated with his/her data. At the moment, this plugin doesn't show the new users' meta in its profile so neither the user nor the admin can update users' data from the dashboard. So the question is: how can we allow the administrator to access to the same page with the update form that users are using for their own and edit users different than himself?

    Thank you in advance! ;)

  2. To show the additional captured information in the user's profile, you need to extend the profile. Once you do that, the user or administrator can edit the profile. I don't know of a way for the admin to edit another user's profile using the Update form.

    Here is one explanation of how to extend the visible profile fields:

  3. Ok. Extend the profile is quite easy. At the moment I've only showed the data, but if there is no way to link the gravity update form I'll add the data in form mode to the profiles. Hope in future versions of your plugin we could do this without programming ;).

    Thank you!

  5. We also would like this feature to be integrated.

    We think about passing a param int the URL like example.com/user-profil/?user_id=10

    If the current user can manage_users, it would populate the user_id meta_data.
    It would also need to update the selected user_id profile as well.
