Using list fields for posts and custom fields

  1. I've searched fairly extensively, and found a bit of information about this, but I'm not 100% sure if I have it correct.

    I want to use a form that contains list fields to create custom posts and preferably a separate post for each row of the list. We want to store this info as a sort of database and each row is extremely similar, so we don't want to make people submit & refill for each item.

    The form has a name, phone, email of the person submitting, a dropdown that gets set as the post taxonomy and the list field. I've got the Gravity Forms + Custom Post Types plugin doing the post mapping work. I'm pretty sure I can set the columns of the list to different custom fields using the after_submission filter, but can I use that or something else to make a new post for each list row?

    Yes, you could use the after_submission hook to create those other posts, but all of the PHP programming burden would be on you, as there isn't any easy way to do what you are asking.
