New Gravity Forms Add-on – Surveys

Gravity Forms - Survey Results

As you know by now, Gravity Forms does a whole lot of things, and now, it does one more thing. You can use Gravity Forms to host surveys.

While you could use Gravity Forms as it stands to build a survey, installing the Survey Add-on adds some new field types that are more conducive to building surveys.

The Survey add-on is only available to Developer License owners. If you don’t yet have a Gravity Forms Developer License, buy one now: it’s so worth it.

The Likert field (I didn’t know what that meant either) are the fields where you can rate several items on a given scale. The scale can have as many steps as you want (say 1-5, 1-10, or extremely dissatisfied to extremely satisfied).

Gravity Forms Survey Fields

You can also create fields for ranking items, where you can drag and drop items into the order that you want (e.g. rank the images from best to worst) and also for ratings (e.g. rate our service on a scale of 1 to 10).

That’s all the new fields types that are available to you, but you can also use radio buttons, checkboxes, single line text, paragraph text and drop downs as survey fields. Just make sure that when you create a survey field, create it from Advanced Fields > Survey and then select the field type you want it to be.

The best thing about the add-on is the way in which it displays results. It’s so well-presented and makes reviewing the results a breeze. At a glance, you can quickly see the most common responses and get a good feel for how your users are responding. Check out this example:

I enjoyed creating surveys with the survey add-on, but for me, what really makes the add-on is how well it presents the results. It makes collecting feedback a piece of cake, and understanding the results even easier.

    Is it possible to get the Ratings data to display in a post field. Like a user review? For example having a 5 star selection show up in the Post Fields?

    1. It would require some custom coding to have that data set to a custom field, because the standard method for adding form data to post meta does not include the survey field as an option.

    Is gravity forms responsive? Is there conditional logic? thanks

    1. Gravity Forms is responsive in that it uses percentage-based widths, meaning that it will use as much room as it is given. So if it’s being viewed on a mobile phone, it’ll only use the width of the screen available to it. And yes, conditional logic is one of Gravity Forms’ biggest features – I couldn’t live without it!

    I am running into problems using conditional logic triggered by previous survey questions? Any experience with this? Is there a work-around?

    1. I can’t say that I have. Conditional logic has never faltered for me.
