Support » Plugin: Sort Export for Gravity Forms » Saving Order

  • Resolved andyt1980


    Thanks for this very useful plugin it works great.

    The only thing missing is the ability to save the selected fields chosen and their order. Currently everytime you want to export entries you have to reselect the fields you want exporting. Also, I have a custom field added using the following filter:

    add_filter( 'gform_export_fields', 'add_fields', 10, 1 );
    function add_fields( $form ) {
        array_push( $form['fields'], array( 'id' => 'custom_field1', 'label' => __( 'oldnumber', 'gravityforms' ) ) );
        return $form;

    I need this field to be exported at Col 1, but every time I come back to do a new export this field is dropping to the bottom of the list. So I need a way to save the order of the fields too.

    Can this be possible?

    Hi @andyt1980, Sorry to keep you waiting. I did not get a notification from WordPress on this issue.

    Let me look into it and I’ll get back to you. This feature was on my todo-list, but I wanted to make sure people would actually use this plugin first 🙂

    Will let you know ASAP!

    Hi @andyt1980,

    I’ve just tagged version 1.1.0. This version keeps track of the sort order, and saves it to the database. So if you were to login from a different computer it will still restore the last sort order.

    Hope this helps you out! Please let me know if this works!

    Thanks that sounds great!
    Would it also be possible to have those fields pre-selected ready for export?

    @andyt1980 That’s how it works now! It stores the last state. So the next time you open it up it first restores that state. Ready for export!

    (Edit: sorry different account active on my phone 🙂 )
