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.

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.

Good Tool - Wish It Had More

Good Tool, happy it exists - life is better because of it, but wish it had more features, such as ability to control listing fields per instance

Search Filter for Date Fields not working
By , for WP 4.0

Update: Zack has responded fairly quickly to another bug, so hoping that issue below is resolved soon too! Hence an increase my rating. Thanks!

While it's a clever plugin, I downloaded it to use for a property rental directory. The properties are available from x date to y date, and the data is inputted using a date picker.

These fields cannot render in the search form, so when someone comes to search for the property by date, instead of a date picker they're given a text field.

This is a problem for obvious reasons (eg. you can write Jan 1 2015 as "1 Jan, 2015"/"1st Jan, 2015"/"Jan 1 2015"/etc) so it doesn't turn up results.

I've posted to the support forum, but don't seem to be getting any response from the developers - which is a shame, because it might be a silly mistake that I'm making!

It's a nice plugin but this is a pretty basic bug that needs fixing for it to be fully functional.
