Gravity Forms Entries – Edit and Display on Frontend

Do you want to be able to display and edit Gravity Forms entries on the frontend of your WordPress site? Do you want users to be able to edit and update their own Gravity Forms entries?

In this post, we’ll show you how to utilize Tablesome to display Gravity Forms entries on the frontend and allow you to edit them.

Tablesome – Gravity Forms Entries Addon

You can save, edit, and delete entries using the Tablesome Gravity Forms Entries add-on plugin. Additionally, Gravity Forms entries can be imported and exported in Tablesome as CSV and XLSX files.

You can also display and edit Gravity Forms entries from the frontend by using Tablesome, a Gravity Forms Front-end Posting and Editing add-on.
On the front end of your website, Tablesome also enables users to edit their own form submissions.

You can start a free Tablesome trial and test it out before purchasing it.

Inline Editing of Gravity Forms Entries

Tablesome stores the Gravity Forms entries on spreadsheet-like table and allows you to edit these entries inline on the backend of your site.

In the frontend, you also get the same inline editing experience. But you can customize the frontend editing to restrict the editing access.

You must first understand how to display the entries in Gravity Forms before learning how to edit them on the frontend.

If you don’t display it, you can’t edit it.

Display All Form Gravity Entries

Each Gravity Forms form’s entries are saved by Tablesome to a different table. Each Tablesome table has a unique shortcode that you can use to insert it on the page where you want it to appear.

All the entries of the selected Gravity Forms form will be displayed on the page in the table.

Display Filtered Data – Show users their own data 

Do you want to know if you can only display each user’s own form entry?
Yes, it is possible with table data filtering based on “User ID.”

To do this with Tablesome,

  • Go to Workflows –> Trigger 1 –> Trigger –> Tablesome ‘On Table Load’

  • Then go to Action – 1 –> Action –> Filter Table 
  • You can filter the table data using a variety of text and numeric operators in the “Where” section.
  • Use the Hidden column filters, such as “Create By” and “Updated By,” to restrict users’ access to only their own data.
  • After saving the table, add the table shortcode to the page where you want to add it by copying and pasting.

Using the “Created At” and “Update At” filers, you could also filter and display entries based on “Time,” or you could use any custom data to filter the entries you want to show on the front end.

How to Enable Frontend Editing of  Gravity Forms Entries?

Let’s see how you can enable logged-in users to edit the selected form entries now that we have shown them on the frontend. You must enable “Frontend editing” in the table sidebar of the Tablesome table containing your Gravity Forms entries.

Frontend editing capability can be restricted to specific user roles. Tablesome can be used to limit a user role’s ability to edit frontend entries.

In the frontend editing options you can:

  • Select which form fields the user can edit by making only those columns editable.
  • Allow users to edit only their own entries.
  • Allow users to choose whether or not they should be able to delete the entry.

If you want to approve entries after they’ve been edited, it will come a little bit later.
