Importing users that have custom data / custom fields

    Hello there. I'm thinking about getting this plugin for my clients new website. They are looking for an advanced user registration form, where they will be able to register new club members using specific information like telephone numbers, their member status, member category, payment information, birthday, and some others. I read that it is possible with this plugin to create these custom fields. But, i was wondering if there is also a way to import users with custom fields (like with a CSV file). I need to import about 300 existing users with those custom entries. So is it possible to import users with custom fields if those custom fields are created with Gravity Forms?

    (I could do this with the Cimy User Extra fields plugin, but there i could not have the frontend registration and the custom fields where hard to customize.) But the import tool worked great, i could import/export users with custom fields created for the Cimy plugin. So i want to do the same but with Gravity forms if that is possible.

    Does anyone have an answer to this? I read on some other posts that importing users was not possible with Gravity Forms.

  2. There is a 3rd party add-on which will import entries from a CSV file:

    I'm not sure how that works with the User Registration add-on. You could ask the plugin developer about that functionality. Mass import is not something that Gravity Forms will handle for you.
