It was just a matter of time. And lots of other functionality, too.

Wait a minute…

A customer sent us a support request wondering why they weren’t able to sort by time in GravityView. We checked it out, and indeed: it wasn’t working. Then we tried sorting by time in Gravity Forms itself. Nope: Gravity Forms doesn’t support sorting by time.

It took some serious database maneuvering, but we’re pleased to say that you can now sort by Time fields in GravityView. Even better: you can sort by the hour and minute, too.

Sort by time Gravity Forms

Version 1.14 also adds the ability to define custom labels for search fields, better display List field content, and improves compatibility with the Gravity Forms User Registration Addon.

GravityView keeps getting better. If Jony Ive were to be in a video announcing this version, he would proclaim “it is the most advanced GravityView plugin ever made so far.” And he’d be right.
