Gravity Forms Dynamic Fields

Description

Insert cookie, session, page, or other kinds of values dynamically into Gravity Forms fields.

Similar to how Forms: 3rdparty Dynamic Fields can insert dynamic values into the 3rdparty submission.

Installation

  1. Unzip, upload plugin folder to your plugins directory (/wp-content/plugins/)
  2. Make sure Gravity Forms is installed
  3. Activate plugin
  4. Create or edit a Gravity Form — under the ‘Advanced’ tab of a field, check “allow this field to be populated dynamically”.
  5. Set the ensuing ‘Parameter Name’ field to one of the registered placeholders:
    • session_desiredkey where ‘session_’ is a prefix indicating you want a Session value and ‘desiredkey’ is the index of which Session value to retrieve
    • cookie_desiredkey where ‘cookie_’ is a prefix indicating you want a Cookie value and ‘desiredkey’ is the index of which Cookie value to retrieve
    • param_desiredkey where ‘param_’ is a prefix indicating that you want a URL query parameter (or form POST) and ‘desiredkey’ is the index of the request parameter to retrieve. Gravity Forms actually already does this, but it’s included for consistency and this param will also check for POST parameters.
    • page_url gets the current WP page url
    • page_url_nodomain gets the current WP page url without the site domain (i.e. relative path)
    • page_url_domain gets the domain of the current WP page url without the relative path
    • page_url_network gets the network domain of the current WP page (useful with multisite); may be the same as page_url_domain
    • page_referer attempts to get the current referring url
    • page_request gets the server-generated page url (which may/not be the same as page_url, such as containing the querystring)
    • page_ip attempts to get the client’s ip address
    • time gets the current timestamp
    • date gets the current ISO formatted date
    • time_local gets the current timestamp formatted to your local settings
    • date_local gets the current date formatted to your local settings
    • sitename gets the blog’s name as configured in your admin settings

How does Gravity Forms dynamically populate normally?

See their wiki page for it — https://docs.gravityforms.com/using-dynamic-population/

How do I get a session value?

See the installation instructions and use session_yourdesiredkey as the Parameter Name, where yourdesiredkey is the Session index you want.

How do I get a cookie value?

See the installation instructions and use cookie_yourdesiredkey as the Parameter Name, where yourdesiredkey is the Cookie index you want.

How do I get a url querystring value?

Use native GF functionality, or see the installation instructions and use param_yourdesiredkey as the Parameter Name, where yourdesiredkey is the querystring index you want.

It doesn’t work right…
