    First off... Love the plugin.
    I'm creating a front end allowing volunteers to enter game day information. I'm using gravity forms. Where does the plugin store the data?

    Am I on the right path using GF to accomplish this?

    thanks

    Hi vanelli,
    So I take it you want to allow some set of volunteers to enter/edit game schedule information but not give them admin access? Is that right? If so,

    1. Unless you are a WP Core developer, DON'T mess with the WP database. [That advise is free, but it's worth much more than you paid for it!] Not only can you hose up WordPress (read "need to re-install") but when some crazed plugin developer like me decides to change the plugin DB you will be up a creek if you try to upgrade the plugin.

    2. If I understand you correctly and you want to provide a form for 'volunteers' to change the game schedule data, then the plugin comes with the forms to do that. The path I'd take is to assign your volunteers to a less privileged role - either live with an existing role below full admin or create a custom role to edit only the game schedules. Some info you may find helpful is here:
