Let user modify their own data, possible?

  1. macfocus

    Hi all,

    Just starting with Gravity Forms so bear with me.

    I am building a site for a sport-club. Purpose is (among others) to create a user Database that holds all relevant info about every club member.
    This info will be used for "public" info like sport-records and for stuff like membership administration like club fee's, committee membership etc.

    Two parts are important:
    1. Users should be allowed to maintain their own data (and only their "own")
    2. It should be possible to show parts of the entered data in a decent way on publicly accessible page(s)

    If I understood correctly point 1. isn't possible, correct? If so could someone point me to a method to achive this?

    For point 2, what is the easiest way to display (a subset of) the data on a given page?

    Thanks for any help/input.

  2. It's all possible, but it will be a customization.

    You have a need to show all of an entry to just the user who submitted it. And then you want to display some parts to everyone. It's all possible, but it will require some custom code and some template work to pull it off.

    The 3rd party Directory Add-on can display entries on the front end. I don't know if you can restrict what portion of the entry to show (public vs. private information):

    The add-on was not created by Gravity Forms, so we can't provide support for it here.

    OK thanks,

    So showing the data could be done with "Directory Add-on", just have to check if it will allow some restriction.
    For making it possible to let a user edit their own data , custom code is neccesary.

  4. Yes and yes. If you have a need to discuss the project with a developer, see the job board.

  5. Good news: the Gravity Forms Directory & Addons plugin version 3.1 added the functionality for users to edit their own entries.
