WiscWeb - Using the GravityForms Plugin
This document includes information about the GravityForms 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: firstname.lastname@example.org.
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/
