Doesn't deliver integration with PayPal Pro as promised
By , for WP 4.5.1

I've been using G-forms as my storefront tool, with payment linked to a PayPal Pro account. It was a bit of a struggle to get these two things connected (not that intuitive on the G-Form end of things) but that part works. What G-Forms does NOT do, however, is push any product data to PayPal. So, on the PayPal side of things, I see that something was purchased by someone on a certain date, but I have no idea WHAT it is!

I've invested seven months in trying to resolve the issue. I've hired two different high-end coders who can't find a fix. PayPal is set to receive this information, and the folks at Gravity Forms say that it should be moving over - but it isn't. This, to me, seems like a bug worth G-Form investing some real time in solving, but that hasn't happened. It has cost me a great deal of time and money. Now I need to find a new payment solution.

Impossible to contact
By ,

I have paid my developer license last saturday, nearly one week and cannot contact them, I tried by support tickets, paypal claim, facebook and twitter... nothing!!

I didnt get my key so i cannot use my developer license, I had to finish a job within this week and i couldnĀ“t because that.

So angry and upset with you guys!!

The entries do not appear properly in the WP Dashboard.
By , for WP 4.3.1

The entries do not appear properly in the WP Dashboard. Submitted a support question and have not heard back for two weeks.

I realize this is a free plugin but this does not motivate me to make a purchase of the pro version.

Easy to use and easily worth the money.

Love this plugin
By , for WP 4.2.1

Absolutely love this plugin. It's been able to deal with every situation and scenario we've thrown at it and the support guys have always been helpful in my experience.

The only reason I've given 4 out of 5 is the plugin does seem to be contributing to some speed issues we are experiencing with our site. Other than that it's really quite brilliant.

Directory Short Code Based on Condition
By , for WP 4.1

In this Gravity Form, Directory shortcode didn't described when we want get fields based on field value like using operator "is". But the
developer said that it's Completely shortcode based, using the [directory] shortcode.
I will rate [*****] if the developer give all type of short codes.
Without those shortcodes this plugin not helpful i think.

If any one Know Shortcodes, replay...

Support is Lagging
By , for WP 4.0.1

Though the plugin itself was not half-bad, but I faced some issues with the payment gateway setup for GF. Well, obviously I tried to contact the support team and faced what was frustratingly slow response. Sometimes, it took them couple of days to just update if they were still assisting me. Though it worked in the end for me, but it was more of a work-around from my mind rather than a clean patched up solution.

So if you are looking for a solution that integrates payment system with forms, GF may not be the best bet.

Simple to Setup
By ,

I did not need a really heavy directory plugin. I just needed a simple table listing that users can update there listings. This plugin did that and more. Very easy to setup and worked great with the Registration add on for Gravity forms. I created my listing form and registration form as one. GREAT JOB!!!

Edit entry not working for users. Hopefully we can get this fixed soon.

Tried the competitor Ninja Forms at first as they from the outside looked equivalently capable. I needed conditional formatting, calculations and multi-page functionality to build a fairly complex form. After 4 weeks of hair tare with Ninja forms we gave up and permanently deleted Ninja and switched to Gravity forms. Everything all of all sudden became easy. And it actually behaved they way you would expect it to.
After installing Gravity. the same form that took 4 weeks to build (and it didn't even work then) was now built in 2 days with Gravity forms!
CSS:ing the forms is much easier. Calculations work. Conditional formatting works, and isn't limited to 1 per page. Gravity simply works!

The only negative thing i can find is when building long multi-page forms they get really long in Gravity forms, as it has everything on one page back end. Ninja forms splits up the different pages back end in a much better way.
