Import Forms from Gravity Forms

Go through this doc to know how to transfer all the formerly built forms of Gravity Forms to weForms with just a few clicks. Moreover, you will also know how your previously built forms of Gravity Forms will look like after importing into weForms:

First of all, log on to WP Admin Dashboard → Gravity Forms so that you can see the forms that you have built in Gravity Forms. Suppose that you are using the following forms in Gravity Forms right now:

Here, for example, we are going to select the form, Test form 1 from the list above. Next, hover your mouse pointer over the form name, Test form 1 to get the Edit option.

Click on Edit to view the backend form builder of Gravity Forms. The screenshot above also demonstrates the shortcodes on the right side of every form name. Here is a backend view of the form Test form 1 in the form builder of Gravity Forms:

Now, to see the frontend preview of this form you will have to navigate to WP Admin Dashboard  Gravity Forms. Like I mentioned before, place your mouse over the form name Test form 1 again to avail the Preview option. Here is a screenshot:

If you click on the Preview option you will be able to see the frontend preview of the form Test form 1. Here is a screenshot that depicts the typical frontend view of  the form created in Gravity Forms:

Now, let's see how this form will look in weForms.

After installing and activating weForms, log in to WP Admin Dashboard → weForms → Tools → Import.

Click on the Import button to make weForms import the forms built in Gravity Forms. Once you click on the Import button, then weForms will start to import all the forms of Gravity Forms immediately. Here is a screenshot of weForms while importing Gravity Forms:

After importing, you will see a success message box containing Edit and Replace Shortcodes options:

You can directly edit your newly imported Gravity Form's forms by simply clicking on the Edit button at ease. You will be able to see the imported form Test form 1 in weForms’ form builder when you click on the Edit button. Here is a screenshot of the form of Gravity Forms in weForm's form builder:

Now, let’s see the frontend view of this newly imported form, Test form 1 to check how it exactly looks in weForms. Click on the Preview button. After clicking on the Preview button you will be able to see the frontend view of the form:

If you hit the Replace Shortcodes button, weForms will replace all the previous shortcodes of the form when it was in Gravity Forms:

Note: You must have at least one form in Gravity Forms published on a page before. Otherwise, after having imported into weForms, you can't replace shortcodes of the Gravity Forms.
