Synthesize data across multiple streams
Let’s say you run a doctor’s practice and you have one form for collecting patient contact details and another form for inputting patient health information. Now you can combine the two into a single entry and display it in a single View (instead of creating two Views). This makes for better clarity, and easier reporting and analysis.
Join your data in different ways
Combine data from two (or more!) forms that share common field values. Display all data from form #1, regardless of whether the fields in form #2 have content, or only display entries from form #1 that have values in form #2. Developer-speak: Multiple Forms supports left joins and inner joins.
Works with any View Layout
Combine data from different sources and display it on the front end using any GravityView layout type (Table, DataTables, List, Maps and DIY are all supported!).
Frequently Asked Questions
About the Multiple Forms extension
Unfortunately not. As Multiple Forms is still in beta, some basic functionality is still lacking. For example, you can’t sort, search or edit entries properly in a View using the Multiple Forms extension.
Not yet, but this is something we’re planning to add in the future. If you’re not quite sure what is meant by “unions”, check out this helpful doc.
Definitely not. “Beta” here refers to the fact that certain functionality is missing from the extension, but you can still use it without fear of it harming your website.
Currently, we don’t have an ETA as to when the extension will be out of beta. We’re working hard to add additional functionality so that we can officially “launch” the extension, but we can’t commit yet to a date.
