Linking New Beta Feature "Update User" to Registration Data?

  1. Is it possible to pre-populate all that data that's collected in the Create form, into the Update form?

    I have a gravity form that has basic user registration data as well as some other data. "How did you hear about us?", for instance. And I want to have a way for users to edit this data. I thought the new beta feature would work, but that only seems to work with the most basic wordpress user regsitration fields.

    Thanks!

  2. I figured out how to accomplish this, as the Create form writes all the data into the Enteries table AND to custom User Meta. Then it prepopulates the Update form with that custom User Meta, and writes back to the User Meta table upon save. Great.

    So now I only need to know how to write the Update form back to the Enteries table as well. I realize I can use one of the after_save hooks for this. Could you provide some sample code to map the Update form to the Enteries fields? (And I'm assuming this is the way it should be done!)

    I will close this topic for now and we'll leave the last one open.
