Import CSV?

  1. I have a number of records I would like to import. If i duplicate the form structure with Gravity is it possible to import the records via a CSV file? Or would this be done with phpAdmin or some other way? If this import capability is relatively easy I will buy the software for sure.

  2. Gravity Forms stores all entries in a database table, so you could use phpMyAdmin to import your existing entries to Gravity Forms' tables. The table structure, however, will not map directly to your CSV file, so it would take a bit of SQL maniuplation to get the data imported. It is definitely doable, but I would not say it is easy.

  3. Hello. I have the same problem importing from CSV. Can you tell me which database table/tables hold the directory? I'd like to try loading the data directly to MySQL.
    Thank you.

  4. If you look in the database, you will see a bunch of tables with _rg_ prefix. Those are the tables. You will need to have a good look at the schema to be sure you get the data into the proper places.

    | wp_rg_form               |
    | wp_rg_form_meta          |
    | wp_rg_form_view          |
    | wp_rg_lead               |
    | wp_rg_lead_detail        |
    | wp_rg_lead_detail_long   |
    | wp_rg_lead_meta          |
    | wp_rg_lead_notes         |

  5. I'm moving my blog to a new domain piecemeal.

    There seems to be an Entries Export feature, but not an Entries Import feature... I have to manually import data into the mysql database to migrate entries?

  6. Data import is not a feature of Gravity Forms, but there was a 3rd party add-on releases which claims to do just that: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/gravity-forms-mass-import/
