WiscWeb - WordPress UW Theme - Using the Gravity Forms Plugin

This document includes information about the Gravity Forms plug-in, including links to the vendor's site on how to use the plugin.

Important: Gravity Forms should not be used to prompt users for any data that could be considered sensitive and/or restricted as WiscWeb is not secured to host this information. For more information, please see WiscWeb - WordPress UW Theme - Sensitive and Restricted Data Policy and the UW System Data Classification Policy.

The Gravity Forms plugin allows you to create forms for your visitors to fill out. You can add a variety of question types and logic to the questions to elicit the information you need from your customers.

Gravity Forms form example

Documentation for how to use GravityForms can be found on the Vendor Website.

Important Considerations

From Email

The "From Email" field for all Gravity Forms in WiscWeb will need to be set to "noreply@email.wiscweb.wisc.edu". More information on this change can be found here: WiscWeb - WordPress UW Theme - Required "From Email" Settings for Gravity Forms 

Sensitive and Restricted Data

It is important to note that these forms do not safely store sensitive and restricted data, and should not be used to gather data of that nature. See UW-Madison - IT - Data Classification Policy  for more info.

Payment Processing 

While the Gravity Forms plugin shows pricing field options, WiscWeb does not support the processing of payments in our multi-site environment. Registration and storefront options that require payment processing will need to be housed in a separate website and linked to from your WiscWeb project. More information on this process can be found in our Options for e-Commerce Transactions KB doc.
