In my opinion they had to make this update to compete with more up to date form builders like Fluent Forms.
As I have been going through the backend, much of how you do things is the same and you could find almost all of the buttons in the same spots.
My favorite feature update includes the multiple columns that are now very easy to adjust. Previously you needed to add a custom css class in order to change columns, that’s gone now.
They do still have a “legacy” feature for forms that were made with older versions of the WordPress form plugin.
Overall this is a great update for Gravity Forms, one that the very much needed.
Of course all the regualar Gravity Forms integrations are there, the signature add-on, GetResponse, Webhooks, Zapier, and Stripe just to name a few.
In this tutorial I go over some of the basic features of the new Gravity Forms Updated Version 2.5. Conditional logic is still a favorite feature of mine and I show you how to in the video.
I will be following this video up with other tutorial videos in 2.5, as said though, most of how you do things is the same, the look just changes.
Some newer Gravity users may not be able to find the shortcode, so I made a quick instructional video of how to find the shortcode.
Keep in mind that I am using the Divi Theme and the Classsic WordPress editor is enable. Your view may be of Gutenberg and that will appear different.
