Merge multiple field entries into new field

  1. I need to create a form which has three fields, but when submissions are downloaded as a CSV, those three fields get merged into a fourth field for the purposes of printing them onto labels. For example, the list of submissions might look something like this:

    Name 1: First Person
    Name 2: Second Person
    Town: Townsville
    Label: <NAME1> and <NAME2> live in <TOWN>

    I hope that gives enough of an idea of what I'm trying to achieve. Is that possible with Gravity Forms and, if so, how do I do it? Or is is something that's only achievable via a spreadsheet formula, once the raw CSV has been exported?

    Thanks.

  2. You can use the gform_pre_submission_filter to combine all 3 fields into one field, then store that combined field in the entry. http://www.gravityhelp.com/documentation/page/Gform_pre_submission_filter

    We did something similar to that, here: http://www.gravityhelp.com/forums/topic/using-user-registration-dynamic-drop-downs-capture-one-value-from-multiple-list

  3. Hi Chris,

    Thanks for your help. I'm no PHP expert, but I'll give that a go next week (work needs signing off by client first) and see how far I get. I'll post another message here if I need to borrow any more of your brain! :o)
