Troubleshooting Tips

  • If you cannot find the Gravity Forms option in the data source type listing, hover your cursor over the dropdown box and scroll down. It is located at the bottom of the list but is not visible by default. 
  • If you receive an error stating that your table has no rows, it is because there is no data yet to port over from the form. You will need to have someone submit results to the form first so that the table can import data.
