Editing Gravity Forms Entries

When editing an entry in Gravity Forms, you normally have to click into the entry and then click the edit button on the Entries page.

Then, modify the entries in the various fields before clicking update.

Then return to the entries page, click on the next entry, and repeat the process.

This workflow takes a long time, especially if you have a large number of entries to edit.

This is where Tablesome enters the picture.

Tablesome – Gravity Forms Entries Editor Plugin

Tablesome stores form entries in spreadsheet-like tables, allowing you to edit form entries directly by clicking on table cells.

Editing Gravity Forms entries with Tablesome is much faster because you can edit a single field inline rather than using the default Gravity Forms edit option.

When you edit form entries on a regular basis for work, you could save hours and days of your life.

Tablesome allows you to add, delete, and update the form entry content stored in the tables. Also, you can display form entries on frontend tables on WordPress pages and posts using Tablesome.

When the form entries are displayed on the frontend table, users can edit the form entries.

You can use the Search, Sort, and Filter options to quickly find and edit the entries you want to modify.

Tablesome editing is 3X to 5X faster than regular Gravity Forms editing.

What’s more good news is that it is free of cost!

How to Edit Gravity Forms Entries on the Backend

Let’s take a look at how to edit form entries from the WordPress backend.

  • Log in to your website
  • Go to Tablesome → All Tables
  • Select the table where you saved the form entries (See how to save form entries with Tablesome)
  • You can view all of the form entries in the table, scroll down, or search or filter the table data to find the entry you want to edit
  • Once you’ve finished updating the entries, click the ‘Update’ button to save your changes

Display Gravity Forms Entries in the Frontend

Every Tablesome table comes with its own shortcode, which you can copy and paste into the WordPress posts and pages where you want the table to appear.

You could add filters to the shortcode to display only the filtered data on the frontend.

You can filter form entry data using the User ID so that logged in users can only see their own form entries. Users who are not logged in cannot see any entries.

How to Edit Gravity Forms Entries on the Frontend

Frontend editing could be enabled for each Tablesome table. Users with access to the table rows would be able to Add, Update, or Delete them.

When the frontend editing access is combined with the previously mentioned User ID filter, users can only edit their own entries.

Access Restriction for Editing Form Entries

Access to frontend table editing could be restricted based on WordPress user roles. Only users who have been assigned a specific user role will be able to edit form entries from the frontend.

Revisions – Tablesome will track all the changes made to form entries. You would be able to restore prior versions using the revisions.
