Programmatically retrieve array of submissions

  1. Is it possible to retrieve array of submissions for certain form programmatically?

    Here's my task:
    - Retrieve array of existing submissions.
    - Prepopulate certain field in form with custom value (say "only 7 left!")
    - Render form on page.

    Any pointers would be appreciated.

  2. Hi, Gleb,

    We do not have functions or shortcodes for displaying entry data right now. This would require custom PHP code. You would need to query the database to get the entries for a specific form. You would probably want to do that using the hook "gform_pre_render" ( . The documentation for that also has an example for pre-populating a drop down.

    If you wanted to just display entry data, there is a 3rd party plugin that does this - .

    We are looking into adding the functionality to display entry data of the front end as a feature in the future.

    Let me know if you need more help.

    Hi Dana,

    I have a similar question to Gleb's. I would like to display entries on a wordpress page as a sort of contact directory.

    When I clicked on the link for the 3rd party plugin you mentioned, it was not found.
    What is the name of the plug in?? Is it still available?
    Do you have any other ideas for how I could do this?

    Thanks so much

  4. Hi, tekoun23,

    The name of the plugin is Gravity Forms Directory Add-On, but it doesn't appear to be listed in the add-ons right now. If not using the plugin, you would need to create custom code which queries the database for your form and displays the entries. You could create a form with an html field and use the Gravity Forms "get_leads" function that is in the file forms_model.php to get the leads for a form and have custom code that writes out the information you need.
