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 Update ::
With the WiscWeb move to Amazon Web Services (AWS), users of Gravity Forms will need to update their "From Email" setting within the Notifications area of each form that you are using to use this email address: email@example.com.
The GravityForms 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.
Documentation for how to use GravityForms can be found at https://www.gravityforms.com/support/
Our User Guide can be found at https://uwmadison.box.com/s/wnqxmfchxzrl5tu06lbpdf9nm7rljuls
For an example of GravityForms, see https://wiscweb.wisc.edu/plugins/gravityforms/.
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.
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.
