Gravity Forms 2.6 Top Features
The core purpose behind this new release is to improve the user experience. In addition, making the form building process seamless and faster. With new features waiting to be used, it will be great to see the feedback these features bring. Without further ado, here are the key features Gravity Forms 2.6 offers;
Embed Form Flyout
The new Embed Form Flyout uses the WP Block Editor. This allows you to add a new form to any post or page directly from within the form editor. You have to open the Embed Form Flyout and choose where you want a form to be displayed. This can be anywhere on a new or existing post, page, and custom post.
In the past, due to the narrow sidebar, it was always a hassle to edit options with a multichoice field. To make your life easier, the 2.6 release offers an expandable Choices Flyout that is responsive to the page width. Now you have all the space you need to manage your choices and options.
Inline Submit Button
No need to rely on CSS Ready Classes to set your submit button anymore. With this release, the submit button settings are relocated to the form editor.
Ajax Form Saving
Thanks to Ajax, now you can save any changes you make to the form. This offers you a faster and better experience while making your form, as the page won’t refresh just to save your edits.
Merge Tag Search
An improved merge tag UI enhances the search functionality. This allows you to search for the merge tags you need comfortably.
In addition to these features, Gravity Forms 2.6 continues its commitment to accessibility and security, with a number of bug fixes and useful additions to make sure they offer a better user experience.
