Detailed Review

Gravity Forms is an online form builder software created by Rocketgenius Inc., a software company founded in 2008 and based in Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA. The software acts as a plugin in your WordPress installation, which allows you to create advanced forms for your WordPress website in just a few simple steps.

There are three available yearly pricing options: Personal License, Business License, and Developer License, all come with autoresponder integration.

From Builder

The form builder tool provided by Gravity Forms allows you to build the form that you want, no matter how complex it is, in a simple way possible. With this tool, you can create multi-page forms, configure form settings, limit your entries, create advanced fields, schedule forms, and more. With the multiple-page feature, you are able to split your form into multiple pages and provide your users with the step by step process to complete their form submission. This is useful if you need to collect a big amount of data, as in surveys or payment information. By splitting the form into multiple pages, it prevents your users from being overwhelmed with your form.

Notifications

Each time the user submits their data through your form, you get the notification about their submission. The notification can be configured according to your needs. You can also respond to users automatically after they complete their form submission, such as by thanking them for filling out the form. If you are working with a team, you can configure the notification to be sent according to the type of submission in your form. You can configure the HTML elements of your email notification, so that you get the look and feel according to what you want, either for the email that is sent to you or the email that is sent automatically to your users.

Form Customization

The form customization feature provided in Gravity Forms allows you to customize the layout and style of your form. It means that you can improve the appearance of your form according to your needs, so that it can match with your WordPress site design. Though the standard layout and style might already be good enough for you, you can always change the look and feel of your form according to your taste. The pre-defined CSS classes allow you to switch between a single column and multiple-column layout easily.

Order Forms

The order form feature allows you to create an order form for your business, and process the payment directly from your form. This feature allows you to customize your product field, option field, shipping method, total field, and payment integration. In this way, the users can easily go through the payment process and order the product that they want quickly. There is a PayPal integration option that allows you to process your order using PayPal as your payment processor.

Conditional Logic

The conditional logic feature allows you to show and hide the specific form fields depending on the user’s selection. The conditional logic feature consists of four different elements: field conditional logic, section conditional logic, page conditional logic, and submit button conditional logic. This feature allows you to make your form more interactive for your users, as well as prevent your users from submitting incomplete data on your form, since you can set the submit button to be hidden until the user input the necessary data to the necessary fields.

Conclusion

If you are running a WordPress website and you want to put an advanced form in your website, Gravity Forms should be a good choice that you can use. It allows you to create unlimited forms, and it allows you to get unlimited entries from your form. With the yearly license fee that is quite affordable, it can be a good investment for you to run your business more smoothly. However, the main disadvantage of this software is that it can only be used in the WordPress platform, which means that you cannot move or embed your form to other platforms.
