Just launched: Entry Reports Pro for Gravity Forms
It started out very simple, and eventually evolved into a more refined product.
A few weeks ago I was asked to report on the number of times users had submitted a particular form between specific dates. A client was running a promotion with the call-to-action ending with the user (hopefully) entering their email address and submitting the form, and they wanted to know how often users were submitting the form each day of the campaign.
No worries, I thought, Gravity Forms should be able to do that. It turns out I was very wrong.
In fact, Gravity Forms entry reporting is a bit lacklustre if I’m being kind. To find out how many entries there are for any given form, you have to go to Forms, Import/Export, select a form, select at least one field, choose a date range and download a CSV.
That’s far from a good experience, and it doesn’t help the client with the aforementioned business requirement, unless you want to manually drill down and arrange the rows of a CSV to group similar dates and then add the totals of each date group. And that’s not even accounting for the potential human error in doing all that.
I couldn’t find any Gravity Forms addons – official or third party – that matched the requirements, and so I was left with little choice and began work on what would become Entry Reports Pro for Gravity Forms.
It started out very simple, and eventually evolved into a more refined product which includes some basic filtering, presentation choices and ability to export to CSV with a single click.
If you’re a Gravity Forms user and you think this convenient level of reporting might be of use to you or your clients, check it out.
